 ============================
 
 We are pleased to announce PyPy's 1.2 release.
-This version 1.2 is a major milestone and it is
-the first release to ship a `Just in time compiler`_ that is known to be faster
-than CPython (and unladen swallow) on some real-world applications (or the best
-benchmarks we could get for them).
-The main theme for the 1.2 release is
-**speed**.
-
-The JIT is stable and we don't observe crashes.
-Nevertheless we would recommend you to
-treat it as beta software and as a way to try the JIT out to see how it
-works for you.
