gjs-0.7 has been released. Gjs allows using GNOME libraries from Javascript.

About Gjs:
Gjs allows using GNOME libraries from Javascript. It's based on the Spidermonkey Javascript engine from Mozilla and the GObject introspection framework.

Changes:
- Add support for "foreign structs" - which are structures that are referenced from gobject-introspection, but need glue code to actually handle them. [Johan D]
- Hook cairo bindings to integrate with gobject-introspected libraries using new foreign struct support [Johan D]
- Start working toward thread-safety by adding JS_BeginRequest/JS_EndRequest
calls throughout the codebase [Havoc]
- add Tweener.setTimeScale and Tweener.getTimeScale [James]
- Wrap cairo_copy_path, cairo_copy_path_flat, and cairo_append_path [Colin]
- Handle destroy callbacks of type other than GDestroyNotify [Owen]
- Handle flag arguments not registered with GObject [Johan D]
- Log errors that occur in callbacks [Owen]
- Bug fixes [Colin, Dan, Owen, Johan D, Johan B, Tommi]
- Code cleanup [Colin, Havoc]
- Build fixes [Víctor]
