The overall aim is to speed up CPython by a factor of (approximately) five. We aim to do this in four distinct stages, each stage increasing the speed of CPython by (approximately) 50%.

1.5**4 ≈ 5

Each stage will be targetted at a separate release of CPython. A faster schedule is possible, but we believe that predictable and reliable performance improvements are more important than squeezing out the maximum performance for each release. Of course delays in software development are all too common, so a release might need to be skipped.

Pyjion is a drop-in JIT compiler for Python 3.10. Pyjion uses the power of the .NET 6 cross-platform JIT compiler to optimize Python code on the fly, with NO changes to your source code required. It runs on Linux, macOS, and Windows, x64 and ARM64.
