Written by Michael Larabel in Programming on 21 November 2022 at 05:59 AM EST. 23 Comments
Following the development builds over the summer, Wasmer 3.0 was officially released this weekend as the newest feature release for this open-source software aiming to serve as a universal WebAssembly runtime with a goal to "run any code on any client" via WebAssembly.

Wasmer is one of several efforts working to drive WebAssembly (WASM) on the desktop and supports a variety of operating systems, has its own "WAPM" package manager, and other features to help embrace WASM outside of the traditional web browser scope.

Wasmer 3.0 brings a new WASIX implementation with full networking support, a lot of code refactoring, a new context API, fixes to its Singlepass compiler, RISC-V support, C API updates, and many other improvements.

Downloads and more details on Wasmer 3.0 via GitHub with there being binaries for Windows / Linux / macOS AArch64 and x86_64. More information on the Wasmer project itself for first-timers via Wasmer.io.
