Donald, do you know if the iOS version has the JIT compiler? I know Apple reduced the restriction for some cases, but I can’t remember if it applied to us or not. Or is the VM on iOS interpreter only?

The recent project announcement is simply to make internal code we have for some of our other commercial products available to those who may wish to use it (and therefore we hopefully benefit from any contributions back). That's it. It won't be released as part of the Oracle JDK. It's just some source, for OpenJDK.
