Adobe and Mozilla Foundation to Open Source Flash Player Scripting Engine

I just saw that a thing called Tamarin (AVM2 open source) Flash9_DotReleases_Branch initial revision was checked into the Mozilla CVS repository. And shortly after the following press release was available:

Adobe and the Mozilla Foundation today announced that Adobe has contributed source code for the ActionScript Virtual Machine, the powerful standards-based scripting language engine in Adobe Flash Player, to the Mozilla Foundation. Mozilla will host a new open source project, called Tamarin, to accelerate the development of this standards-based approach for creating rich and engaging Web applications.

Once again Mozilla Foundation leads the way in the open source world.

This is a major milestone in bringing together the broader HTML and Flash development communities around a common language, and empowering the creation of even more innovative applications in the Web 2.0 world

Read the press release or read about the Tamarin project.

Mind blowing! I sat fire to my hair and nearly spilled my morning coffee. I even forgave Adobe for ditching the SVG plugin right there. If they throw in the Eclipse editors they use for Flex Builder, that'll be the end of it! Some very impressive lobbyism from Brandans gang - and some good journalism on your behalf, since you managed to break this story of the year. There is still time to catch the official unveleiling at the #javascript channel conference on in about 30 minutes...
