Quick one: will Messenger Plus! Live support JScript.NET in the future?

RE: JScript.NET
I never looked into it but maybe, if it adds significant advantages to the current JScript model. Do you have some in mind?

Well, basically all .NET features not supported by ActiveX and not available to JScript through Interop.

RE: JScript.NET
Wouldn't people need to install the .NET framework then? Or would most people have it already?

That said, it is an interesting idea. I'd like to see how much more could be possible using .NET.

.NET Framework is already a requirement for Messenger itself, isn't it?
Finish the problem

RE: JScript.NET
Personally, I have had a little bit of a look at some code for JScript.NET in the past couple of days and don't find it as nice as the current JScript engine we use.  Of course there are some advantages, but nothing really significant given the strong scripting engine that we currently use.  Personally, I think it is better to stay where we are as the current scripting engine is a nice basis for people to start coding (something that makes it more inviting for the ordinary user to have a go at) compared to the complexity we see in the .NET languages.

I wasn't asking for the current engine to be removed ;) A combo of both languages could be very powerful.

RE: JScript.NET
One possible advantage of adding JScript.NET support: it would make using assemblies from scripts child's play. Also, with the extensive security framework in .NET, the permissions of assemblies can be very tightly controlled, if necessary.
