Announcement from Mark Hammond:

I've opened https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395734 with an initial prototype of an AXScript engine. This engine doesn't do much at all yet, but does enough to demonstrate some important concepts. In the bug I've asked about the specific names I've chosen (eg, 'tamarin-central/axscript' being the new directory, with the project being named 'axtam') and I welcome all feedback on that and anything else. Once I've got it all checked in, I'll then be asking for specific advice about how to best integrate with the VM.


No updates to report.

Self-hosting Compiler

Announcement from Jeff Dyer:

I've just pushed the initial version of ESC to tamarin-central. It still needs a lot of love, but it's a start. It compiles itself using the ES4 reference implementation (written in SML). The set of .abc files generated is good enough to interpret various simple expression statements on Tamarin, including of course: print('hello, world!'). Our next goal is to get ESC to compile itself on Tamarin.

You'll find the code and a small README file in tamarin-central/esc.
