Excelsior JET 7.6 Shipped Ahead-Of-Time (Pun Intended)

I am happy to announce that Excelsior JET 7.6, originally scheduled for October, has become generally available yesterday, September 19. Download now

The Difference Is Under The Hood

As explained in the roadmap, this release delivers the first results of our core engine review/rewrite work on which we have been concentrated ever since the previous release. Excelsior JET 7.6 does not show off any shiny new features, but, under the hood, the new engine parts are expected to boost application performance on multi-core/CPU systems.

Also included is the support for the latest versions of Java SE 6, Eclipse RCP, and Apache Tomcat.

Update 25-Oct-2011: We have verified that Excelsior JET 7.6 is also interoperable with Eclipse SDK 4.1, so you may take advantage of the latest Eclipse RCP improvements.

Finally, we have addressed a handful of stability issues and brought a few implementation-defined aspects of our JVM behavior into line with the reference implementation.

Please take it out for a spin and let us know if you feel the difference!

    Great work guys! Now we eagerly await the much needed 64 bit port.

    Excelsior Jet looks like great – 64 bit and Mac OSX support would make it perfect.

    Not quite yet – ARM support would have been missing then. 😉
