Strobe acquired by Facebook
Charles Jolley, Strobe founder and creator of SproutCore, said on the company blog that the Strobe service will continue to be available to its existing users in its current beta form. Jolley has worked on SproutCore for a number of years, using the framework to create the user interface for Apple's MobileMe cloud service.
The SproutCore project will continue to be run independently. Strobe co-founders Yehuda Katz and Tom Dale, both part of the SproutCore development team, left Strobe a month ago and have set up a new company based around SproutCore 2.0 called Tilde.
