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
