"We are pleased to announce PyPy's 1.2 release. This version 1.2
is a major milestone and it is the first release to ship a

unladen swallow) on some real-world applications (or the best
benchmarks we could get for them). The main theme for the 1.2
release is speed.

try out the JIT to see how it works for you.
