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.

It does seem odd that the website looks so rushed, as though they were camped out at OSNews listening to discussions about Apple's Open Source plans, i would expect Apple to make things look a little more polished before letting the public know about them.
