Announcing SquirrelFish

WebKit’s new JavaScript engine:

SquirrelFish is a register-based, direct-threaded, high-level bytecode engine, with a sliding register window calling convention. It lazily generates bytecodes from a syntax tree, using a simple one-pass compiler with built-in copy propagation.

Oh, and it’s fast.
