Hello everyone,
Sorry for not writing anything interested in a past few days, I was in some kind of not planned vacation. Anyways, time for the news.

Mozilla team updated us by providing more details about IronMonkey and ScreamingMonkey. Here are some quotes from their post.

The critical, core, component of this is the Tamarin virtual machine (which is an Open Sourced version of the ActionScript Virtual Machine that powered the Adobe Flash Player). Tamarin already supports ECMAScript 3 (and, thusly, JavaScript, ActionScript, and JScript) and parts of the upcoming ECMAScript 4 specification.

JavaScript will no longer be the only viable scripting language in browsers that use that Tamarin engine. At the very least, there’ll be two more languages to work with.

ScreamingMonkey is the effort, being led by Mark Hammond, to allow the Tamarin engine to run within non-Mozilla browsers, starting with Internet Explorer.

ScreamingMonkey Planning Notes.

That’s a brief, here’s a full story to read (if you want to).
