"The Mozilla Skywriter project is no more. It's moving from Mozilla, and the code is being integrated into the Ajax.org Cloud9 Editor (ACE).

"Skywriter is a Mozilla Labs project to build a Web editor for the cloud. The project was first called Bespin, a reference to the cloud city from Star Wars.

"Mozilla's decision to end Skywriter as a Mozilla Labs effort does not mean the end of development for Skywriter-based technology, however. Still, it is indicative of a shift in focus at Mozilla that has occurred during the past year.

""The big change that happened is that Mozilla has said that we need to put more oomph behind our developer tools effort and get more things into Firefox and get more of a community built up around building developer tools for Firefox," Kevin Dangoor, manager of developer tools at Mozilla, told InternetNews.com. "For those of us working on Skywriter, that became the bigger picture."
