Andreas Rossberg (MPI) : Wasm 2.0 and Beyond
WebAssembly (Wasm) is a virtual instruction set architecture designed for portability, performance, safety, and formal rigour. After its initial release, it has seen wide adoption across diverse ecosystems, such as the Web, edge computing, distributed computing, mobile, embedded systems, and others. Recently, release 2.0 of Wasm was published, which represents a step forward towards a more comprehensive model of modern hardware and computation. In this presentation, I will give an overview of what’s new in this version and present the major new features that are currently in the making for upcoming versions. I will also provide some general insight into the goals and the modus operandi of the Wasm working group.
