[antlr-interest] ANTLR - Java Script Target - dormant / active?

I subscribed to this list after this thread started, so I'm unable to preserve the threading, but I wanted to add my voice to those who need ANTLR-generated parsers (and lexers) in Javascript.

I'm beginning a project that involves Browser-side parsing of a Domain-specific-language in Javascript. I've used ANTLR on other projects recently and was really hoping I could just use my ANTLR skills for this project. I'm concerned to hear that the Javascript support has waned. And if ANTLR doesn't have Javascript parsers, can anyone recommend something like ANTLR that does?

I too am interested in targeting JavaScript, and a friend told me that it
was working in 3.3.  Do you have any recollection of that?  Since a few
other folks are interested in JS, maybe a small group of us could start
investigating that, share status, and maybe even branch fixes off of 3.3.
if needed, or try to update 3.4.  Let us know if you think this is
reasonable, or if you would rather not have this complication, etc.  If you
have any suggestions or guidance about a JS target or appropriate forum for
that discussion, that would be much appreciated!
