Daniel Jalkut sees the advent of SquirrelFish as
In recent days, new partial drafts for the upcoming ECMAScript specs have become available. Parts of the
ECMAScript 4 spec draft
were previously spread all over the email archives. Nice to have them compiled in one place. The
ECMAScript 3.1 spec draft
wasn't available at all before, as far as I'm aware.

different approaches in SquirrelFish compared
to the Tamarin based ActionMonkey project (which will replace SpiderMonkey in the future).

Finally, the Apple folks are getting around to adding their
thumbs up or down to the list of ES4 proposals.
They "applied red rather more liberally than the other vendors", as they themselves put it. They made some interesting votes: No "like"?, no "Namespace"?, no Function.bind?, no "let"? Unfortunately, they red inked the proposals related to adding meta object support. On the other hand, they red inked Nullability and Non-nullable classes, which doesn't make me cry.
Forthcoming at the end of this week will be a whitepaper explaining the criteria they applied along with the rational behind the votes on proposals where Apple's position differs from the one of other vendors. Until then, there is only so much that can be read into those red flags.
Helma Meeting Spring 2008
