CACAO JVM 0.91 released under GPL:

CACAO is a JIT compiler for Java. The CACAO project started as a
research JavaVM to explore new implementation techniques. The first
version for the Alpha was released in February 1997 as a binary. After
1998 the development nearly stopped. Since two years we are actively
working on CACAO again and are proud to announce the first source
release under the GPL. CACAO is still under development and there
are still some steps to version 1.0 left. But it is already very
usable for must applications (only preliminary AWT support).

Currently CACAO is able to run on Alpha, MIPS (64-bit), x86, x86-64
and PowerPC (32-bit) architectures. Other architectures and
optimizations like inlining and linear scan register allcoation are
under developement.
