Apple is pleased to announce the open source release of the new  
JavaScriptCore framework, based on the kjs JavaScript engine from KDE.  
JavaScriptCore is a private API which may be used by future Mac OS X  
applications such as Sherlock, and is provided as Open Source as part  
of our partnership with the KDE community. JavaScriptCore will be used  
by Sherlock in an upcoming O/S release, and possibly by other Apple  
software in the future. Apple chose kjs as the basis of its JavaScript  
technology for its simple and efficient code.

The source to JavaScriptCore is available at  
0.2.tar.gz. In the future, we hope to have JavaScriptCore available in  
the darwin CVS repository.

We would like to thank kjs author Harri Porten, all of the other kjs  
contributors, and the KDE project.

All Apple changes will be contributed back to the mainline version.
