I hinted at it when I wrote my first post after I started at Adobe, but Tuesday at WWDC I finally got to announce it to the public.
Adobe will actively contribute to the Cocoa version of the SWT.
I’m not sure how many Adobe people will be working on it, but I do know it’s at least one (me). I have some other projects to finish up, but right now I will switch over to full-time work on the Cocoa port in mid-August.
If you want to help out, start with the home page and take a look at the current list of bugs. That’s how I got started in the Carbon version.
For the time being, I’m going to use this blog as a journal to keep track of where we’re headed next and also ‘think out loud’ about sticky problems we run into. I already read the platform-swt-dev list, but I should be able to write longer things here that wouldn’t be appropriate for the mailing list.
Update: See the story on Ars Technica or MacObserver. In the interest of clarification, our goal is to lead the effort, but we’re going to do that by committing fixes and new work. We’re not claiming it by fiat.
