MacroMonkey 2.01 and the new LuaJIT
Mike Pall released "LuaJIT 2.0.0-beta2" http://luajit.org/index.html
I've spend the last day making a new MM with it.
Hard to say if it will be relatively faster, but it looks like it will be.
It's almost like he recoded the entire Lua base and optimized it everywhere in addition with
yet more advanced JIT technology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just-in-time_compilation
Although it's beta it seems very stable.
I've just begun to test it on ReqBot so I have something to compare too.
One issue is that it currently requires processor support with SSE2 or greater.
Probably most users will have at least a Pentium 4 or better. AMD64 and of course the Intel Core CPUs
have SSE2 or greater too.
I still have one fairly good old AMDXP processor though that only has SSE1.
Although he should have support back in (and other platforms, et al) later.
A problem for anyone?
Edit: Appears to be around 50% to 100% or more faster for ReqBot
Not that ReqBot is slow, but now that I added twice as many buffs, etc., I notice the GUI update is faster,
and things are a bit more snappy and crisp.
* Although not quite ready yet. It does a Lua "panic" on some common errors, and it locked up the bot once.
