Many quick tongues


Some quick (sic) updates on multiple languages on the JVM for you.

An illuminating story from Charlie on how and why to make use of the new invokedynamic bytecode for JDK 7 for the JRuby project, in prototype form, as one of our contributions to the community of developers working on making multiple languages run best on the JVM.

Of course, the JVM is not the only runtime trying to speed up dynamic languages. For example, with the recent release of Google's Chrome browser, its interesting to see optimisations from the 1980s for the Self language pop up in the V8 JavaScript engine it uses.

But as we tune the JavaFX SDK for release before the end of the year, Chris has been getting some surprising results on the execution speed of JavaFX Script compared with ActionScript.

And, finally, a shameless plug for the JVM Dynamic Languages summit in less than two weeks. I hear there are still a couple of spots :)
