"In the spirit of onward and upward," wrote Google's VP of Engineering, Vic Gundotra, on the official Google Code Blog at the end of last week, "we have decided to shut down the Mashup Editor, currently in limited private beta, in favor of the more powerful App Engine infrastructure." Google is also "discontinuing" Dodgeball.com, Gundotra revealed - a mobile social networking service that lets users share their location with friends via text message.
"After the migration is complete, we will release the new open source Jaiku Engine project on Google Code under the Apache License. While Google will no longer actively develop the Jaiku codebase, the service itself will live on thanks to a dedicated and passionate volunteer team of Googlers."
