Lua Vermelha is an implementation of the Lua language, version 5.3.3, with a Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler built from Eclipse OMR compiler technology.
Any benchmark against LuaJIT?
None as of yet.
The project is still in its early infancy and there’s a lot of performance work that still needs to be done. Since the two projects are very different, I’m not really sure what to expect either.
