Amber.js (formerly SproutCore 2.0) is now Ember.js

Most people told us to stick with Amber.js, but a sizable minority told us to come up with a different name. After thinking about it, we didn't feel good about the conflict and decided to choose a new name.

Henceforth, the project formerly known as SproutCore 2.0 will be known as Ember.js. Our new website is up at
