Dear Jython developers,

I came across this thread http://blog.dhananjaynene.com/2008/07/performance-comparison-c-java-python-ruby-jython-jruby-groovy/

I understand that numbers given above pertain to a type of test/code and may not be true for certain areas but still I was wondering if the new release (Jython2.5a+) has improved in the area of performance in general.

Regards & thanks
