"In addition to the public, several organisations have already expressed interest in contributing to ChakraCore. Among many others, we look forward to working with Intel, AMD, and NodeSource as we develop this community," Seth added.
While the initial release in January will be Windows-only, Microsoft said its intention is bring ChakraCore to other platforms in the future.
"ChakraCore is already designed to fit into any application stack that calls for a fast, scalable, and lightweight engine. We intend to make it even more versatile over time, both within and beyond the Windows ecosystem," Seth said.
"We'd invite developers to help us in this pursuit by letting us know which other platforms they'd like to see ChakraCore supported on to help us prioritise future investments, or even by helping port it to the platform of their choice," he added.
