Git push


#1

Hey everyone,

I usually just quietly push changes out, but I wanted to say something
about the changes that went out today. Today’s changes have changed the
interpreter to be an Adaptive Compiling interpreter. For those who don’t
know, that means that the code is interpreted, but after 2 (this number
may change) calls to a method, we compile it to native code on a
background thread.

With this change, you might notice some performance improvements. In
addition, this change means that -X:Interpret will be going away. The
option will still be there, as it’s a DLR option, but it won’t do
anything on IronRuby.

Let us know if these changes cause any bugs.

Thanks,
JD

Hi there - does this mean that the rspec fixes are in there too?

This is now fixed. Not sure if RSpec or Cucumber are blocked by any
other bugs (someone reported something on the mailing list recently …
but there are no bugs open for it).
