This week there’s a new section, suggested by Colin Taylor: Waiting for 1.9, which highlights JIRA tickets and commits of interest.
Libraries & Books.
- Jake McCrary has released reload, a Ring middleware for reloading your namespaces with clojure.tools.namespace on every request.
People are worried about Types. ?
- ObjectLayout, a set of data structures that could be used to support higher performance for object arrays by allocating contiguous memory in a hypothetical future JVM. See also this presentation on it.
- Project Valhalla, a similar but more ambitious project for value types in Java.
- A mailing list discussion on how these two projects relate, including an excellent reply by Brian Goetz with a 20 year future perspective on Java’s development.
