Open Source WebKit

When one door closes, another opens, as they say.  Dave Hyatt has announced  http://webkit.opendarwin.org, the WebKit Open source Project.  Apparently, Apple has finally decided to fork from the KHTML project and start their own development branch.  The new development site contains the CVS for WebCore and JavaScriptCore--the open source khtml and kjs derivatives, and also the newly open sourced WebKit itself, the Objective-C WebCore API that Apple web apps are built on. Patches have already been submitted.

The timing certanily helps alleviate some of the "Apple is turning to the dark side" fears. I can't say that it worked completely, but kudos to Apple for reaffirming their commitment to the open source community.
