Parrot 0.1.2 was released a couple of weeks ago. According to the release notes, there's now "better python support, separated into dynaclasses".
Unfortunately, I haven't really managed to keep up with the Parrot project, but I think it quite possibly represents the strategic future of Zope.
An obvious benefit is the genuine concurrency it offers over GIL on SMP hardware. Anyone running an enterprise Zope or Plone installation would desire to take advantage of this.
I know a year or so ago, someone received a pie in the face at a conference because Parrot still wasn't as fast as the native Python interpreter, but maybe this too has changed with this release.
I'm very interested to know if anyone is investigating Parrot.
