PyPy GSoC: Wrapping up
Well, we're reaching the end of the official GSoC period, and asmgcc-64 still has some obscure bugs. I'm going to continue to work on it in the two weeks before my college starts up, but it's hard to make time estimates regarding how long it will take to track down weird failure modes.
But the bottom line is that the main goal of my GSoC was accomplished: A working 64-bit PyPy JIT. Hopefully I'll be able to complete asmgcc-64, and make the JIT even faster.

PyPy GSoC: 64-bit JIT merged to trunk
Well, that took longer than it should have. In any case, 64-bit JIT support (with Boehm GC only) has been merged to trunk. Please try it out!
The remainder of my GSoC will be work on the asmgcc-64 branch, to allow the 64-bit JIT to work with non-Boehm collectors.
