I don’t know if this is a well known fact or not, but I was positively surprised
by plans to introduce AOT compilation to native code . I hope there will be
some videos available from those talks.

The GitHub repo of scala-native became available recently.
As far as I have seen the runtime part isn’t really there yet, but I have high hopes that scala-native will be amazing.
