Hi Tunesmiths.
I hope you all are doing well.

Here is interesting news, if you are interested in Virtual Machines.

Most/all of you likely know of Squeak, a *Free* version of the Smalltalk

The new Squeak version, 1.3, has a brand new, powerful, *Free* virtual
machine, with Just In Time (JIT) Compiling. It is said to be a beautiful
design, with source code.

It is by VM researcher Ian Piumarta of INRIA, France. He ports Squeak to
many UNIX platforms.

Since Piumarta is in France, maybe Fare' can visit him sometime and get
inspired, or get a better job?

Happy new year.
