The article forgot to mention IronPython, which runs on the CLI virtual machine (.NET / Mono). Although perhaps that just runs on top of a virtual machine, rather than compiling Python programs directly into VM opcodes?
Shed Skin accepts a subset of Python and translates it to C++ which is then compiled to pure native code. It would be interesting to see how its performance compares to Unladen Swallow.
