[$] Adding a JIT compiler to CPython

LWN.net - staro 53 min 51 sec
One of the big-ticket items for the upcoming Python 3.13 release is an experimental just-in-time (JIT) compiler for the language; the other is, of course, the removal of the global interpreter lock (GIL), which is also an experiment. Brandt Bucher is a member of the Faster CPython project, which is working on making the reference implementation of the language faster via a variety of techniques. Last year at PyCon, he gave a talk about the specializing adaptive interpreter; at PyCon 2024 in Pittsburgh, he described the work he and others have been doing to add a copy-and-patch JIT compiler to CPython.

SUSE Wants a Piece of the AI Cake, Too

Slashdot Linux - staro 4 ur 6 min
SUSE, a Luxembourg-based open-source company, is launching a new vendor- and LLM-agnostic generative AI platform called SUSE AI solutions. The company aims to leverage the potential of AI to gain a stronger foothold in the U.S. market, where it has struggled to establish brand recognition compared to competitors like Red Hat and Canonical. SUSE CEO Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen believes that the open-source model provides infinite potential for enterprise customers, offering support, security, and long-term stability. The company's recent fork of CentOS has attracted a significant number of users, and its portfolio, including Kubernetes service Rancher and security service Neuvector, positions SUSE well in a market where enterprises are looking to consolidate platforms. Despite ownership changes over the years, SUSE remains committed to expanding its presence in the U.S. market.
