Submission + - Firefox to support scripting with IronPython/Ruby (

MonkeyMan writes: A new project called IronMonkey will extend the Firefox web browser's next-generation ECMAScript virtual machine to support scripting with IronPython and IronRuby: 'The IronMonkey project aims to add multilanguage functionality to Tamarin, a high-performance ECMAScript 4 virtual machine which is being developed in collaboration with Adobe and is intended for inclusion in future versions of Firefox. The IronMonkey project will leverage the source code of Microsoft's open source .NET implementations of Python and Ruby, but will not require a .NET runtime. The goal is to map IronPython and IronRuby directly to Tamarin using bytecode translation.'
