Battle of the runtimes!

Seems that after the release of JamVM 1.4.0 a lot of projects thought it was time to do an updated release (most based on GNU Classpath 0.19):

And slashdot claims GCC 4.1 Released (grin, they are about 2 months early…) But I am sure that when it actually releases it will certainly rock!

It is nice to have so much choice. And most of these projects are really mature now. The use of really different execution engines (interpreter, byte-code transformation, jit, aot or some hybrid) is really facinating to watch.
