|Deno 1.2 Adds HTTP Auto-Compression|

Deno uses V8 and is built in Rust. It is described as secure by default as it has no file, network, or environment access, unless explicitly enabled. Deno was created by the same developer who created node.js - Ryan Dahl - and its name is a rearrangement of the letters in node.
The next improvement is support for auto-compression for HTTP response bodies by Deno's native HTTP server. This means that if a client request supports compression and your server responds with a body that isn't a stream, the body will be automatically compressed within Deno.
Elsewhere, two new subcommands have been added for benchmarking and to add a new task runner. The developers say this provides a convenient way of defining and executing custom commands specific to the development of a codebase, and is similar to npm scripts or makefiles.
Deno 1.2 is available now.
