Excelsior JET 10 Released Ahead of Time

We have released Excelsior JET 10, originally scheduled for September. Download your evaluation copy now.

Update: That was on July 23, 2014. The next day, the boot hard drive in our main build server started misbehaving and eventually died a couple of weeks later. Call this perfect release timing if you wish.

Notable Changes in Excelsior JET 10

OS X support

The 64‑bit versions of Excelsior JET, Professional and Enterprise Editions are now available for Apple’s OS X desktop operating system.

Slightly Less Notable Changes in Excelsior JET 10

64‑bit application performance improvements

As evidenced by industry‑standard and popular benchmarks:

  • SPECjvm2008 and SPECjbb2002 composite scores improved by more than 25%
  • 20% to 60% speedups observed on the DaCapo benchmark suite
  • etc.
15-25% reduction of 64‑bit executables size

P.S. if your Support Contract was active on July 23, 2014, or you have purchased Excelsior JET 9.0 after that date, you should have received the download instructions for version 10 by email.

If those instructions are neither in your inbox nor in your Junk Mail folder, email us at sales@excelsior-usa.com.
