ASM now supports the new invokedynamic opcode.
I slowly (really slowly) progress in order to
complete the implementation of the JSR292 backport,
not because it's difficult but because I have
not much time devoted to that task.
Recently (ok, ten days ago), John Rose sent
to mlvm that allow javac (not the real one :)
to encode an invokedynamic call
using an used/free opcode (186).
In order to support this new bytecode instruction
in the backport, I have patched ASM
and because I know that lot of dynamic languages
use ASM in their backend,
that patch is available in a branch
named invokedynamic of the SVN repository of ASM.
