Dow Down; Java RTS Downloads Up

Wrapping up the week, it's good to see the solid press coverage on our Java RTS 2.1 EA announcement last week. It's even better to see the strong initial developer response as measured by all the downloads of our free EA evaluation. A couple of quick, interesting "Who's Downloading" highlights from current EA stats:
  • Enterprise to Embedded A wide range of industries are represented by our downloading developers. The top industries include Financial, Telco/DataComm and Industrial Automation.
  • Are You Experienced? Of those downloading, experienced Java developers new to real-time slightly outnumber experienced real-time developers new to Java (40% vs 30%).
In addition to David Holmes' write-up mentioned in my previous blog, check out the recent blogs from two other engineers on our RT team: Roland Westrelin provides details on our work with Linux futexes; Bertrand Delsart writes about our flexible Real-Time Garbage Collector (RTGC) which can even be tuned (down, down, way down) to behave similarly to IBM's Metronome.
