Hello there!

I've been using HiPE on a couple of x86 Mac machines (Core 2 Duo)  
running OSX Leopard for three months getting substantial benefits in  
terms of speed. All I did was compile the Erlang/OTP source package  
with --enable-hipe (after installing the apple developer SDK of  
course), and have my Erlang sources compiled with +native +'{hipe,  
[verbose, o2]}'. I've been trying with both native and beam  
compilation, and the mean performance gain has been of about 25% when  
running native code. Still I cannot say anything in terms of overall  
stability since the tests have been performed on my sources only and  
without any deeper understanding of the internals of the HiPE- 
generated code.
