How can you help? Join us for the Tamarin kick-off meeting on Tuesday, August 7 at 21:00 GMT (2:00 US PT, 5:00 US ET -- meeting details below) to help shape our plans and see where you can contribute.
Here are the topics we’ll be discussing at the kickoff meeting:
More information on ECMAScript can be found at the Ecma TC-39/TG-1 working group portal (http://www.ecmascript.org/) . This site contains pointers to the ES4 proposed features, a downloadable alpha-quality ES4 reference interpreter, and pointers to the in-progress specification.
Self-hosting ECMAScript compiler (esc) – an ECMAScript compiler written in ECMAScript. This project is working towards having an incomplete but self-compiling ES4 compiler in the next two months.
Also, there are 3 new Tamarin projects announced by Brendan a couple weeks ago:
IronMonkey - This project is developing a mapping of IronPython and IronRuby to Tamarin. The project page is http://wiki.mozilla.org/Tamarin:IronMonkey.
