+PyPy development in 2011
+========================
+
+Hello everyone.
+
+PyPy development is fast, sometimes very fast. We try to do 3-4 releases a year
+and yet a lot of time when someone complains about the last release being slow
+we usually say "oh, but it's the release, that was AGES ago". That makes
+something as big as summarizing a year next to impossible, but using my
+external IQ amplifiers like internet and hg log, I will try to provide you
+with some semi-serious statistics:
+
+* We made 3 releases last year, boringly, 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7
+
+* Number of visitors on pypy.org grew from about 200 to 800 per day (averaged
+  weekly)
+
+* We spoke at 15 conferences/meetups
+
+* We made 10660 commits, or 29 per day (mostly typos ;-)
+
+* We published 43 blog posts, keeping you entertained almost weekly
+
+* We made PyPy over 2x faster (on a select set of benchmarks),
+  `1.4 and nightly`_ comparison
