I am also sure that there have been talks about the other frameworks too. If I was Apple, I would combine these worlds, get the developers together, and produce something really killer, using the great HTML5 support and features that WebKit is running with.
Jeff Watkins, the author of Coherent, has posted about the change:
I originally started developing Coherent back in 2005 because I wanted to use Cocoa for my Web applications, but Cocoa was only available for Mac applications. If there had been a Web version of Cocoa, I never would have begun developing Coherent.
Iâ€™ve long felt Apple would provide the best environment for Coherent, and since I joined the company last year, Iâ€™ve been thrilled that weâ€™ve been able to use Coherent in a number of projects.
Today, I am delighted to announce that I have assigned ownership of the Coherent library to Apple. Naturally, I can’t speak for my employer regarding what future products might include this library, but I can say my hope is that this will ultimately make Coherent a better tool for Web developers.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
