I'd like to officially announce the Rust Working Group at the Academy Software Foundation. You can see the official blog post here: https://www.aswf.io/news/academy-software-foundation-announces-formation-of-rust-working-group-initial-release-of-openexr-rust-binding/
The group is designed to create a framework to allow developers interested in creating Rust bindings for C and C++ libraries used in the media industry. Also as a byproduct, to also create (at least some) of those bindings. Our first crate released is https://crates.io/crates/openexr and we're currently wrapping that up, while starting to work on OpenImageIO, Ptex, and USD.
Also, we host a bi-weekly meeting to discuss the status of the bindings on Fridays at 1 pm Pacific Time. You can see the calendar here: email@example.com | Calendar
Lastly, please feel free to send any and all questions over. We're really excited to get this far, and we hope that eventually we'll see more Rust at studios.
