Mac OS X Mac OS Forge, a new community site hosted by Apple, is being created to support WebKit and other open source projects focused on Mac OS X, especially those looking to transition from OpenDarwin.org. New buildable kernel sources for Intel-based Macs are posted there as well, finally answering the complaints from the community. Other than this, Xcode 3 now includes Sun's Dtrace.

Or maybe the backlash and all the "bullshit" people wrote made the folks at Apple realize just how much the community really does care about their support of open source. I mean statementslike "the Intel kernel sources haven't been released" and "OpenDarwin is shutting down", aren't really bullshit....those were facts just a short time ago.

I doubt it was the backlash. More likely it was time they needed to secure proprietary code and make the necessary modifications (for example, to XNU) to be able to share their code.
