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.

For those of you knocking the Mac OS Forge web site...

Relax, I don't think it's an offical Apple web site.

From Network Solutions' WHOIS:

Registrant Organization:RadicalCentrism.org
Registrant City:Elk Grove
Registrant State/Province:California


So it's more likely a real community web site started by a Mac user, not Apple the company.
