Arlo Rose and Perry Clarke have released a new app for mac users, Konfabulator 1.0. Konfabulator is a JavaScript engine designed for creating desktop Widgets. The app features Quartz support for seamless Mac OS blending. According to Arlo Rose and Perry Clarke:

Arlo Rose and Perry Clarke are proud to announce the release of Konfabulator 1.0.

Konfabulator is a JavaScript runtime engine for Mac OS X that lets you run little files called Widgets that can do pretty much whatever you want them to. Widgets can be alarm clocks, games, can tell you your AirPort signal strength, will fetch the latest stock quotes for your preferred symbols, and even give your current local weather.

What sets Konfabulator apart from other scripting applications is that it takes full advantage of Appleis Quartz rendering. This allows Widgets to blend fluidly into your desktop without the constraints of traditional window borders. Toss in some sliding and fading, and these little guys are right at home in Mac OS X.

You can find more information about the Konfabultor release at the Konfabulator Home Page. Konfabulator is available as freeware.
