ScreamingMonkey is the project to add script-engine integration glue to Tamarin, so that it can handle

 <script type="application/ecmascript;version=4">

and

 <script type="application/javascript;version=2">

tags in other browsers, starting with IE (using ActiveScript interfaces).

Current Status

A functional implementation exists in the tamarin-central Mercurial repository (look for an axscript directory). A number of problems remain - some due to limitations in the Scripting Engine, others related to work that still needs to be done on Tamarin itself - see the tracking bug for up-to-date information, but the best thing is to download the binary and try it out!

A binary is available here - it is a typical Windows installer, including uninstaller, and includes the engine, a README and some test files (md5sum of installer is c1fb03a8393102b642635fdcfb4e201d.) Although it should be considered an Alpha release, it works well enough for many purposes.

We are currently planning Stage 3 - see Tamarin:ScreamingMonkey:Planning notes for what remains.
