WebAssembly 1.0 is declared as an official web standard by W3C (World Wide Web Consortium)
You might have heard about the amazing W3C commonly known as World Wide Web Consortium. Recently, the World Wide Web Consortium has declared the Web Assembly 1.0 an Official W3C recommendation.
According to the experts, the Web Assembly is known for providing the utmost portability, safety, and low-level code format. The main purpose is to offer the compact representation and efficient execution.
According to this new language, the Web Assembly allows the Web platform to perform several executions efficiently. The executions will be of computationally intensive algorithms and as a result, you will practically be able to deliver the new classes on the Web or anywhere else.
Web Assembly 1.0 is a platform-independent execution environment, therefore, it allows you to run it on any other computer platform. Currently, the W3C has introduced three specifications of WebAssembly which are as follows:
Web Assembly Core Specifications:
This specification is meant to define the low-level virtual machine. The machine is there to copy the functionality of several microprocessors when it runs.
WebAssembly Web API:
This specification allows you to define a promise-based interface. Further, it allows you to request and execute Wasmtime resources, which were published recently.
Fixed width SIMD:
There are basically vector operations that are meant to execute several loops in parallel.
To provide the advantages of shared memory through multi-threading and access to atomic power, W3C integrated threads.
Through tail calls, you can easily call functions without requiring additional stack space.
ECMAScript module integration:
This feature allows you to reference host objects through your manually written Web Assembly.
Apparently, there are several ongoing projects that are meant to offer reliability and usability including debugging interfaces, Web Assembly System Interface (WASI), and debugging interfaces.
