Trine 2 is planned on mac (and Windows) latest quarter. We can watch a video here.
WebKit framework, derived from KHTML and having initiated many of HTML5 features (thanks to iPhone’s WebKit implementation, that was also allowed by Core Animation), was launched 10 years ago by Apple. The first verison of Safari was released later in 2003, and the project became open source in 2005 (Google contributed, and it has been used by Nokia, Adobe and Palm/HP).
Creator of Cappuccino worked at Apple in the initial development team for iPhone’s WebKit version (the most impressive from 2007 to 2009). Google may then be interested by 280 North, that was bought by Motorola a year ago, and is now owned by Android/GWT editor.

As I had supposed, Google may use Cappuccino to replace Java as Android SDK. Besides solving the licensing problems, this solution could lure iOS developers, easing Cocoa to Android porting.
The new Google mobile OS would just have to be based on WebKit, in the same way Palm/HP’s WebOS does.
As Steve Jobs announced his resignation as Apple’s CEO (he wants Tim Cook to become the new CEO as planned, and also asks for keeping leading Apple’s vision as president of boards of directors), we can find many hidden tributes in OSX Lion :
– New icon for user accounts presents, as tracks titles on a vinyl, well known words used on keynotes.
We can also discover at New York Times the list of 313 patents owned by Steven P. Jobs.
The upcoming presentation of iPhone 5 and new macs design will probably allow for a video/live message.
