Subject Re: Is it important to improve optimizations of Harmony's JIT compiler?
Date Wed, 20 May 2009 05:46:33 GMT
Hello Egor,
Since we get Intel software partnership, we can request an access to
the performance lab at Intel in Nizhny. They provide a computer,
software and a specialist for a week.

We may ask Vadim Sukhomlinov if any possibilities exist to optimize
code from Moscow.

And btw, yes. I have an account on Alexey's home server. ;-)
