@sogaiu sounds right, I’ll forward the data to the issue

borkdude08:02:22

thanks for testing!

I wonder what happened to the latest two (or three) releases so that there is this performance regression.

ales.najmann10:02:27

I see, I've misread the description. But question remains, right?

borkdude10:02:21

yes. it seems the graalvm folks don't know either, but I hope they are investigating. we aren't using graalvm20 for bb yet

ales.najmann10:02:04

it's really complex project and features can and are influencing each other.

ales.najmann11:02:25

funny fact, I'm ex-Oracle Labs employee. I was sitting next to bunch of Graalvm maintainers. 'Unfortunately' I was working on something else, but I like to recall all the conversations I had with them about challenges of Graalvm project.

borkdude11:02:49

oh, how cool!

borkdude11:02:58

what were you working on?

ales.najmann11:02:31

it was called Data Studio, it was a notebook system similar to Jupyter, it was based around Apache Zeppelin, some interpreters were native, like bash and python. But thanks to graalvm we were also able to write notebooks in LLVM bitcode (that was super weird), and jruby for example. But those were more like a lab features. I was frontend dev, so I did the facelift for that. Visualisations and UI. Also I did bunch of demo notebooks.

sounds cool 🙂

There is a presentation from my boss (Hassan) and team leader (Daniel) https://youtu.be/mWDeEXs_CMQ

ales.najmann11:02:10

Cool and painful 🙂

borkdude11:02:16

hehe, I bet.

ales.najmann11:02:04

I actually think that your projects would be nice to work with if bundled as interpreters.

ales.najmann11:02:43

babashka + fastr, what a combo :D

borkdude10:02:37

to put it in perspective: graalvm20 macos binaries still start faster than ruby, python or joker 😉

borkdude10:02:52

but I hope they will get back to the performance they had on 19.3.1

borkdude17:02:13

btw, they have found the startup issue.

ales.najmann10:02:11

Windows scoop users now can enjoy great new release too.
