What's GLUEscript?

GLUEscript (Glueing Libraries Using EcmaScript) is the successor of wxJavaScript. The new name covers the goal of this project: create a JavaScript engine which can be used as a general purpose language (like Perl for instance).

First 0.2.00 release available

Today I've released the first version of GLUEscript in the 0.2.00 series. Because I've made the switch to an Ubuntu environment (32-bit), this release is a source code only release. This is a first release, so I assume there will be some bugs to hunt for. I hope some of who you can help to find them ...

The biggest changes are: Upgraded SpiderMonkey to 1.8.5, ctypes can be used, there's a PDF glue now, solved some bugs in MySQL glue, upgraded Poco to 1.4.3 and make it compile again on a Linux environment.

In the meantime I will try work on the documentation (moving to asciidoc). There is some info available on how to build GLUEscript in the asciidoc folder. When I get asciidoc working on my machine I will generate a more readable version of this document.
