To mirror Dave Mandelin’s blog post, we’ve gotten a paper on trace compilation accepted to PLDI, one of the top programming language research conferences.
Andreas Gal is presenting the paper on June 18th in Dublin. You can read it by clicking here (requires PDF reader).
Trace compilation is the new optimization technology appearing in Firefox 3.5. If you want to see how it feels, give 3.5 beta a go (it’s stable and nearing release).
I’ll have a bigger and better post about this and sundry things soon. The short of it is, I’m back into trace/language research after a six-month reprieve. It is good to be back!
