The road to ChakraCore parity on Linux
With the JIT and the fully featured garbage collector landing in ChakraCore, all major architectural pieces of ChakraCore on Windows have now been ported to Linux. The team is now focused on adding the remaining few features such an Internationalization support, squashing the last set of bugs and optimizing the performance characteristics for ChakraCore on Linux to be on par with Windows.
As we make further progress on the cross-platform related pieces in the upcoming months, you can expect a release of ChakraCore with better Linux support and performance. However, for those of you who’d like to try ChakraCore on Linux or macOS today and share your early feedback with us on the Beta quality support now available, here are the instructions for you to get started.
