Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Public Beta of JIT Javascript Compiler for Odyssey v1.25 for MorphOS
   posted by ASiegel on 18-Jul-2018 16:41:27 (2509 reads)

Mark Olsen has shared a special test version of the recently launched Odyssey v1.25 that introduces a PowerPC native port of Webkit's Just-In-Time Javascript compiler, which can greatly accelerate suitable web applications.

Please note that JIT compilation does increase memory consumption. Also, please be aware that this release only includes the first stage of the JIT compiler which limits the speed increase.

Further performance improvements are to be expected in the future.

Download: Odyssey v1.25 with JIT

Bigfoot put up a ne new binary as the last one included a mistake that nullified speed improvements. New version should be quicker now (but speed improvement against standard version is rather small wth this first release).

@ amigang

I agree. Would be great to see an AmigaOS version. Would probably be the most used piece of software on the OS.

@amigang

Now why didn't I write a version of MOSEmu?

@-Sam-

I think a browser is the most used application on any OS. Unless you are into games or productivity.

My OS4 Odyssey went crazy and posted twice.

@klx300r

AROS version on x86 using JIT is about 100x as fast as MOS and OS4 version not using JIT.
Assuming AROS hardware is between 5 and 10 times faster than the fastest OS4 and MOS hardware per cpu core, and the jit engine is 2x as fast at same raw speed (both likely) it still suggests the speedup for javascript could be up to 5x as fast.

Honestly not sure whether to sigh, or congratulate. Big boost for those using ppc, but absolutely lethargic vs. the rest of the world. Have to question whether it's worth all the effort to approach a p3@500 mhz level of performance for JIT based javascript, but at the same time even that is a massive improvement.

Welcome to 1995 levels of performance though

@fishy_fis

True indeed, my PC with Linux (why use AROS since I can use Windows or Linux, it's weird) is really faster than my X1000.

Do you realize that your comparisons are nonsense?

But well, it's you, the usual troll that we are all used to. Get a life!

@fishy_fis

This is the 1st JIT release which is more a proof of concept. Follow up releases will bring some more sppeed increase.

Hence, better congratulate than sigh.

@ fishy_fis

hey fishy please have some respect for the developers that work hard on Amiga software (be it 68k/PPC/ Amiga like/ etc etc). Although you might not appreciate their efforts I can assure you that many of us do!

I take it you're not 15 years old any more so please stop acting like you are.

Wow this is very cool. Congratulations to Mark Olsen and the other developers/testers for getting it this far.

Breaking the endianness barrier and moving the browser forward is a great achievement!
