    Safe interop between Rust and C++

    You can't. However there are options.

    - Rust has strong support for C ABI much like C++. So you can communicate between Rust and C++ via a C ABI.

    - There are projects like https://cxx.rs/ to provide higher-level bindings between the two languages.

    However I suspect that template-heavy/generic-heavy code will never be well supported. This is usually not an issue for the types of things that we are trying to bind.

    Rust Cross-Platform Host-Side Bluetooth LE Access Library

    I've always been annoyed at the cross-platform story for Bluetooth. GATT is one of my favorite protocols because it is so simple, but writing simple code against this simple protocol is _not_ portable:

    iOS and macOS have CoreBluetooth, Linux has BlueZ, Windows has Windows.Devices.Bluetooth and Android has android.bluetooth.

    I've seen a few projects trying to fix this, like https://github.com/deviceplug/btleplug, and I hope one of them becomes production ready.

    Adding support for the Rust language to the Linux kernel. (by Rust-for-Linux)

    Hi! Not a Google employee, but I'm volunteering on the Rust-for-Linux project which is bringing Rust bindings to the upstream linux kernel. A Google engineer is working on porting binder to Rust and is contributing as he implements it. See his comments here[0] and here[1].
