Guile is know for being quite slow, at least in its non-JIT incarnation, so I’m really curious to see where Guile now stands with a JIT support. The detailed announcement mentions a 4x speedup, which is really good. Now, how does Guile’s speed compares to Chez?
A 4x speedup would be good for Guix, which last time I tried it was frustratingly slow compared to Nix.
I really would like to give Guix a shot, but have only used Nix so far. Maybe I’ll wait for Guile to be updated before I try it! Thanks
