Some guesswork

Rev: CHANGES:1.49

521:   Optimizations:   --------------    - o Machine code used on some architectures. + o Machine code generation +  On systems with IA32, SPARC or PPC32 processors Pike will generate +  native machine code as byte code. This byte code can then by +  executed directly outside the virtual machine and gives a 30% +  performance boost compared to other systems.      o Computed goto   
533:    arrays    replace    - o Deferred backtraces. + o Deferred backtraces +  Most of the information in backtraces are now calculated upon +  presenting the backtrace information and not when the backtrace is +  generated. This improves the performance of catched errors.      o Saved 8 bytes per object for objects not using their parent scope    - o Improvement and bug tickets closed: 1499 +     -  +    Compatibility changes:   ----------------------
