Google Summer of Code 2024 (GSoC '24) accepted projects have been announced with the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) seeing seven student developers engaging this summer with several of them focused on enhancing GCC's Rust front-end.

One of the developers involved will be working on inline assembly support within the Rust front-end. Another one of the student participants will be working on borrow-checking IR location support for the Rust front-end. A third student developer will be working on the Rustc test suite adapter for the "gccrs" Rust front-end.

Other GCC GSoC projects this year include enhancing the f95 compiler for the DO CONCOCURRENT construct, OpenMP and OpenACC offloading to a separate process on the same host, improving "nothrow" detection in GCC, and structured dumping of generic trees.
