XBL 2 is now a candidate recommendation ( the news : ). 

This is the time to implement it into Gecko ;-)

Taking this since I'm working on implementing XBL2.

However note that this is a HUGE project, there will not be XBL2 support in Firefox anytime soon, not because noone is working on it, but because it is a big spec and we want to implement it right.

But we ARE working on it.

Sergey Ilinsky announced today on public-webapi mailing list (w3c), the release of its own implementation of XBL2 entirely in javascript, which works with all browsers :

Any news ? Jonas, are you still working on it ?

ditto...any information about status would be helpful.  I saw that it's also being implemented in WebKit/Safari but this is the browser that really matters!  Thanks!
