Can anyone say if there have been any significant advancements in Kotlin/WASM tooling since the publication of this article, little over a year ago? https://superkotlin.com/kotlin-and-webassembly/ I'm truly surprised at the apparent silence on this front; since the push towards WebAssembly (read: away from JavaScript) is one of the most exciting frontiers in mainstream technology at the moment - and with a lot of reward up for grabs. I would not be at all surprised if JetBrains have a dedicated WebAssembly IDE (perhaps as a major iteration of WebStorm) quietly in the works.

Has been very disappointing with the way WASM support is progressing. Hopefully some major WASM announcements will come out of this year's Kotlin Conf 🙏 . What is Kotlin's angle/vision with WASM What will Kotlin bring to the table that is missing, or lacking with other languages when it comes to WASM support

There is a opportunity for Kotlin to provide solid two way WASM interop, which is reasonably type safe and bridges the JS side (to tap into a large ecosystem). Is the Kotlin team ready to take on the challenge?
