Google releases Closure Compiler

From the announcement:
Closure Compiler is a JavaScript optimizer that compiles web apps down into compact, high-performance JavaScript code. The compiler removes dead code, then rewrites and minimizes what's left so that it will run fast on browsers' JavaScript engines. The compiler also checks syntax, variable references, and types, and warns about other common JavaScript pitfalls.


There's also a large library and a UI templating system.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out; maybe a lot of people will pick it up and start using it!

Maybe there will be patches from community.

There's no Making Closure Better document, though...
