In this code:

fn main() {
    let mut x = Vec::new();

when I hover xit says Vec<i32, Global>.
What does the Global mean / where is it coming from?

seems to link to alloc::alloc::Global

Vec now has a second type parameter for the Allocator:

Though, isn't r-a supposed to filter out defaulted type parameters?

We do filter them out for hints, but not for hovers, showing "full" type information there.
