Pyston is an open source Python implementation that aims to be both highly compatible and high-performance.  It uses modern JIT techniques and natively supports many CPython C extension modules.  Please see the main blog for the current status.

Pyston is sponsored by Dropbox, and is pronounced “piston”.
