Rust in 2018: Let’s fix where the bullet holes aren’t

souce: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivorship_bias
  1. It might be nice to see some focus on expanding platform support. Maybe some of the Tier 2 platforms can move up to Tier 1, and Tier 3 platforms could move to Tier 2. I would love to see the addition of even more architectures! I am looking forward to hopefully compiling my projects for AVR someday.
  2. Const generics would help a lot in laying a foundation for solid high performance linear algebra library. I’ve read past the end of a vector in EigenC++ on several occasions . Rust should be able to provide a safe, high performance alternative.
  3. SIMD support would be great for the platforms that have it.
  4. I personally wouldn’t get much use out of inline assembly, but I’m sure a lot of people out there would!
  5. More classes, guides, tutorials, and examples of Rust in the embedded world!
