John Resig working on the Live Editor

John Resig recently created a PR on the Live Editor Github. John is the creator of JQuery and of Processing.js (the port of Processing that KA uses).

John has been a KA employee for years, and did a lot of the original development for the live editor, before even Pamela or Kevin. But John hasn’t been the one maintaining the Live Editor, and he hasn’t contributed any code recently, until this PR.

It bodes well if KA is reassigning more than just Pamela to work on the Live Editor. Even if this is a one time thing and we don’t see more from John in the future, it still indicates that KA hasn’t completely forgotten about the editor.
