    I think so! I don't know if it needs compilers writer tho? If people are looking to contribute or maybe open up a discussion thread there to see what could use more help.

    There's a plant of topics in which we might need help. To name a few, we might need some help in [porting the remaining JSR-166 types]( to Scala Native shipped with future experimental multithreading support, but also large parts of the Java standard library need some improvements or reimplementations. Last but not least, we need people dedicated to the optimization of our current toolchain to make it use fewer resources and allow for faster builds.

    Scala Native could have been this language, but at this stage I don't see it happening.

    I presume only the JVM version of Scala can use Loom but scala-native ( and scala-js ( can't use Loom. Similarly with Kotlin, the JVM Kotlin gets Loom, but the native and Javascript backends do not.

    Nope. Scala Native is (still) single threaded, just like you are in e.g. Python or Node.js.
  • What is Scala Native use case?

    Until recently, there was only 64-bit support. 32-bit support is coming, though, see this pr. This means that you will be able to target 32-bit microcontrollers soon. Anything lower than 32-bit might not be realistic.
