Hi all,

I have a few spare hours this week that I can hopefully bring to bear on swig V8. I hope it's not too difficult for me :)

Let me know what you'd like me to do and I'll give it a shot.

Hello swiggers,

I want to update you about the current state of the Javascript module.

The last 3 weeks I have been working on the V8 part of the module and achieved a major milestone yesterday.
We have now a dual mode module with the two parts, JSC and V8, being int a similar state regarding features.
Some stats:
I managed to have a huge code share between the two module parts, where 25% of LOCs are engine specific, (i.e., 25% V8, 25%JSC, 50% shared).
Basic features are implemented: globals, classes (single inherit), constants, enums, pointers and refs, overloading, exceptions... The module is UTL enabled.
The test-suite contains 32 (successfully running) tests currently - and we have 13 examples.

For the next phase I'd like to introduce John Cant (@cc), who is willing to assist me in the V8 development.

On the schedule: extending tests and the director feature.

If you have questions or are even interested in collaboration, don't hesitate to ask :).
