Submission + - Facebook to release "HipHop" PHP to C++ Compiler (facebook.com)

sinclair44 writes: Tonight, Facebook plans to release as open-source the "HipHop for PHP" project, a transformer from PHP to C++.

Facebook claims that this insanely cool project has gained them about a 50% CPU usage decrease on their webservers.
