New JavaScript FX library from Vienna, Austria: script.aculo.us is past, scripty2 is the future!

Thomas Fuchs is the pioneer of the first FX JavaScript library script.aculo.us and as he and his work reside in Vienna (which is more or less my hometown) I have to support his new open source product called scripty2 which is a successor of script.aculo.us.
