Axial – Write JavaScript with C# or VB.NET

I’d like to announce Axial, an MSIL to JavaScript translator designed to help write JavaScript when using ASP.NET. Version 0.2 added support for the <canvas> tag, which allows vector graphics and animation to be embedded in web pages without Flash or Silverlight. The tag is supported in all major browsers if you use ExplorerCanvas for IE.

There are a lot of unanswered questions about this project, such as whether it’s viable in the real world. I’m interested in hearing all comments.
