John Resig has blogged about ActionMonkey which is the first real news that we have heard from Mozilla after Adobe donated Tamarin to the foundation:
The result will be what is used to run the upcoming Mozilla 2 platform.
The first stage (Stage 0) is to replace SpiderMonkeyâ€™s memory management with the garbage collection routiens of Tamarin (also called MMgc).
Other stages that need to be taken into account include:
- Preservation of the existing SpiderMonkey API.
- Replacement of SpiderMonkeyâ€™s decomplier with one that is compatible with Tamarin.
- Replacement of SpiderMonkeyâ€™s interpreter with an evolved version of Tamarinâ€™s
- â€¦ and much more.
Great to see some momentum building.
