Demo setup: wash up -d --disable-wadm and then running wadm from the manifest upgrade branch.
Wadm is responsible for managing applications in declarative states.
In our pet clinic app example you'll see a wadm.yaml - uses the OAM format - using the same standard.
In this example, we see 5 different actors laid out as components inc. image ref. and assembled spread scaler trait (allowing you to spread out to more locations - more to come on that!).
New feature: Status Updates - allows you to see whether your app fully-deployed, if it's having issues finding available hosts, etc.
New feature and fix: manifest upgrades - deploy a new version of an application that has changes. You can update the version in the manifest - and run several replicas of the same instance.
In this example, we see the manifest update across 5 separate actors.
See the recording for the full demo and discussion.
DISCUSSION: Roadmap update on Rust host and Witify efforts
Following the publication of the wasmCloud Roadmap, we're keen to make sure you're updated on how we're integrating WASI Standards and priming wasmCloud for the Component Model.
Community members have been working on the Rust host - most of the core functionality will be in within the next few weeks.
WITify - the effort to change all interfaces to WIT and expressing our logics in actors and providers, based on WIT. We have made great progress here -- Victor has been been scaffolding it out, getting codegen working for providers.
Wasifills, multiplexer experiments. Paused whilst some changes within the Wasm community have been ratified.
If anyone has any suggestions around the roadmap and issues milestones, feel free to suggest.
Take a look at Golang site Go 0.21, now released with an experimental port for WASI - really exciting development in the Go space.
The Bytecode Alliance already organized a Go subgroup in its SIG Guest Languages.
