Rust for iOS: Status Update

It’s been a while since last status update, but I hope it was worth waiting. Rust is now completely ported to iOS: all architectures for device/simulator are supported. Since green threads were removed, adding support of arm64 was actually almost straightforward. Special thanks this time goes to Will Glozer who was debugging remotely. Fortunately for our sanity, there were just a couple of minor issues.

Although all changes have been landed to master, cross-compiled libraries aren’t distributed with nightly, so in case you’re interested in trying it out, you can either build it from source (instructions) or use a pre-built dist.

As earlier, the main usage sample is located here. It still uses makefile based approach and I hope to update for cargo a little bit later.
