As a MorphOS user and supporter, I will be donating toward the Webkit Javascript bounty, which will further enhance my web browsing experience when using the great Odyssey browser. As an AmigaOS4.x user, I hope that the bounty will be open source, so the code can also be used if/when an update to the OWB browser for AmigaOS4.x is started. AmigaOS4.x users sure could use a new version of OWB that is up to date with the current MorphOS version of Odyssey (though some may disagree with my opinion and prefer to use a different web browser on AmigaOS4.x).

Donation previously made to the MorphOS G5 port. Also just made a small donation to the JIT JS OWB port by PayPal, although received the following PayPal message:-

"Your donation is pending while we review it. Regulations require us to take a closer look at some transactions. We'll contact you about this again in 24-72 hours. "

Hmmmm..........

Trevor and others: thanks a lot for a donations. My PayPal recently is much more active in my business than it used to be while getting past bounties. So for them it's something different that I'm getting such a big volume of donations recently and they have to 'investigate' it for whatever reason. No worries at all, all donations will hit the account and of course BigFoot's account at the end :)

Perhaps amigalike bounties should have some part to make the resulting SW crossplatform for all Amiga flavours...


(I'm increasingly against wasting resources == against implementing same thing for every flavour again and again.)


btw. is that site really only in polish?

Yeah, how about making this one crossplatform? Or maybe this one, or even this one?

The bounty page is in Polish/English, but the Morphos.pl site is only in Polish, sadly (for foreigners, that is :) ).

Whatr I wonder, after reading this, is why a PowerPC generator for JS doesn't already exist for Webkit? I mean, is it only recenly that JS JITs have been popular? On PC that is. Because I would have thought Apple would have written one in their time. Or at least some company that supported PowerPC.

The other thing I wonder is why JIT is made for JavaScript? It appears to be a tad inefficient to create a low level CPU JIT for a script when Java bytecode already exists and was in use for years! Don't me wrong, JavaScript is better on the Amiga because it works, but why is the industry using a script language that would have to be converted into another form for ther JIT when bytecode provides the logical and more direct method for creating a JIT cache? Do they just like wasting time on the slowest method because x86 is the fastest?

Another comment is that, not only would this benefit the Amiga scene, but it would benefit the whole PowerPC platoform as a whole. Given it is stated to be a PowerPC compiler for JS in Webkit.
