Hero of the week: Patryk27

As I’ve written before, more than a year ago Rust on AVR went into the weeds because of bugs in LLVM.

I made a workaround, but it was far from ideal - and if it’s been frustrating for me, I’m sure it’s been a complete barrier to many even getting started with AVR on Rust.

Finally: AVRoxide - a working Rust runtime for ATmega4809

It’s been quite a few months' work, with many challenges along the way - but finally I’m pleased to announce that I have a working runtime for writing applications in Rust for the ATmega4809 microcontroller (and thus also for the Arduino Nano Every.)
