JavaScript, please!

C# is nice, but JavaScript rules the front-end :)

        is there any update on the JavaScript parser? There was a comment saying that a version had been written about a year ago - is that available in the latest version on Plastic?

        Do TypeScript (first) and you will get JavaScript at the same time. Everyone should stop using JavaScript anyway and go with TypeScript. Since it is a superset of JavaScript there is no problem for those that want to write plain JS, but the option to type stuff is there for those who want to use it.

        So do you guys have any plan of when you would be releasing the JS version? And do you have a GUI for OSX? If I can have both, itd be my dream come true!!!! I always thought about language-based merging. And I finally found you guys!!!

        We have a Javascript parser up and running, but we never made it public. We shared it once with this list. If anyone is interested... drop me a tweet @semanticmerge

        Is there a way to subscribe to get updates for that feature?

        Ah... JavaScript is not Java. Java is now available (November 1). Did, actually mean that work has begun on JavaScript?

        I'm working in Node and Backbone, so it's JavaScript everywhere, would love to see Javascript support (on OS X) ;-)
