Of the three perf benchmarks on the #dartlang webpage, Richards is the only one where the #dart2js output performances worse than the source javascript. 

13 days ago, it was at 85% of the source JS.
Yesterday: 93%

Interesting case!

"The Linux memory manager keeps cached filesystem pages in two types of lists. One list holds recently accessed pages (recency list), and the other one holds pages that have been referenced multiple times (frequency list).

In current kernel versions, the memory manager splits available memory evenly between these two lists to establish a trade-off between protecting frequently used pages and detecting recently used ones. In other words, the kernel reserves 50% of available memory to the frequency list."

"My theory is that it was designed to experiment with advanced type and language features first, and only secondly became a language intended to be widely used.

And in my mind, that’s just not a good enough pedigree to warrant using."

Groovy, JavaScript, and Ceylon. Groovy's type system is admittedly the same as Java's, but it's optionally typed, which I also like. Ceylon has its own, expressive type system with fully reified generics and null explicitness (e.g. Integer? is a distinct type from Integer)--so far I've found it more annoying than helpful. But at least its method signatures are more readable than Scala's.

+Nathan Weizenbaum is doing awesome things to make #dartlang  code easy to debug. From the commit message:

Add a stack chain class to the stack trace package. This class uses zones to track stack traces across asynchronous boundaries. It will aid considerably in debugging errors in heavily-asynchronous programs.

I've also heard it phrased as "Did you hear the joke about the UPD [protocol]? You wouldn't get it."

Really neat, though I think the imaging satellites with the "push broom" sensors (triangles) have their sensor FoV possibly rotated 90 deg.  I would be really surprised that they move along the "thin" edge, instead of perpendicular to it.
