JsRT API (JavaScript Runtime Hosting) and Windows 10/Edge

JsRT API have been improved for Windows 10/Edge (JavaScript Runtime Hosting).

Based on this new capabilities, Microsoft has started a port of node.js from V8 engine to Chakra engine (Bringing Node.js to Windows 10 IoT Core). For experimental purpose, this port use Chakra Shim, a bridge between node and chakra exporting V8 API  (chakrashim/include/v8.h) but ultimate goal is to provide a neutral javascript engine interface that can be implemented by any engine.

There is also some preliminary samples on how to integrate either chakra or node with chakra into Win32 or UWP Apps: Using Chakra for Scripting Applications across Windows 10.
