Apple Sprouts

AppleInsider has some details on SproutCore. The official web site says, "makes Javascript fun and easy" - and it's just a Ruby gem install away. They also link to some previous talk about Cocoa for Windows.

Apple's trojan horse in the runtime wars has been well known for a while.

The photo demo looks a lot like the MobileMe Gallery that was presented at WWDC 2008 (SproutCore doesn't seem to work too well under IE 7 and the rotation only works in Safari). Gallery has less functionality than things like Photoshop Express although the integration is obviously better.

There's also an interesting Javascript library for drawing 2D objects (UML, workflows, etc) that I've been shown recently called Draw 2D.
