We wanted to announce to this list our early preview snapshot of
Ejscript -- an ES4 based implementation of ECMAScript.
The goal of this implementation is to create an ECMAScript best suited
for running outside browsers. Our key targets are embedded
applications and server side scripting.
This is a partial release with the core components of a stand-alone /
integrated compiler, VM, module file manager, doc generator and shell.
Standards compliance is currently low and there are some big missing
features. So don't expect too much yet. Our focus over the next 6
months is to close the ES4 compliance gap and get a release out by end
of the year. In the meantime, this will go into our embedded web
server (appweb) and start getting some use for server side web

this from subversion.
We've basically got a working (breathing) ES4 minus these items (and
- Type validation
- Parametric types
- Structural types
- Chunks of Date, Regexp and other classes
- Destructuring assignment
- Prototype inheritance
We'll add these over the next few months.
