Zig 0.8.0 is out with initial Haiku support

Good news, everyone! Thanks Al, for your effort!

Al Hoang contributed some initial work to get Zig to run under Haiku. Some things that are now working:

  • zig cc of a barebones C program appears to compile.
  • zig build-exe can generate an executable binary.
  • zig run on a zig file works.
  • Some basic Standard Library abstractions are implemented for Haiku.

Getting stack traces to work is still in-progress.
