LuaJIT is a high-performance virtual machine for Lua. I've recently started playing with it and this blog post talks about what I've discovered so far. LuaJIT is a tracing JIT as opposed to a method JIT -- it works not by discovering and optimizing hot methods as a whole but by discovering and optimizing hot traces or paths of execution. LuaJIT has a rather interesting interpreter as well, but I won't talk about it here except in context of the JIT.
