Question: Is JSFX an interpreted or compiled language? How does its performance compare to C++? Are there any benchmarks somewhere?

    It is compiled. If you carefully optimize the code it's probably about half the speed of typical non-SIMD C++. Some things are slower, e.g. memory accesses using [], since it involves bounds checking and conversion to integer, etc.

    This is great! I read somewhere that it is going to be open sourced at some point. Are there any news on that end?
