Last June, Arnold Schwaighofer push a patch to mlvm repository that
allow to transform tail call invocation
of a method to a jump.
Even if this transformation is classical in language like Lisp, Scheme or Caml,
the JVM was not offering any help to optimize this kind of call until this patch.
Our JavaEE 6 / GlassFish v3 Virtual Conference was a great success - and a lot of fun.
I'm going to let Harpreet report on the detailed attendance numbers,
but peak simultaneous (not total/aggregated) attendance at the keynotes was over 1400.
This is our first time, so I don't have comparison numbers, but
it seems very good for an online presentation in mid-December!
I attended myfirst IndicThreads conference, fourth otherwise,
in Pune last week.
