Hi! This thread is for announcements and status reports related to the “Async Foundations” Working Group, which is the working group dedicated to pursuing the async-await syntax, Future trait, and other “built in” things related to async I/O support in Rust.

First status report:

I wanted to post a quick update on the status of the async-await effort. The short version is that we’re in the home stretch for some kind of stabilization, but there remain some significant questions to overcome.

Announcing the implementation working group

As part of this push, I’m happy to announce we’ve formed a async-await implementation working group. This working group is part of the whole async-await effort, but focused on the implementation, and is part of the compiler team. If you’d like to help get async-await over the finish line, we’ve got a list of issues where we’d definitely like help (read on).

If you are interested in taking part, we have an “office hours” scheduled for Tuesday (see the compiler team calendar) – if you can show up then on Zulip, it’d be ideal! (But if not, just pop in any time.)
