It does? From the changelog:

=== RELEASE 2.1pre29 ===

[snip]

Mon Apr 16 01:49:07 MET DST 2007 mikulas:

        Javascript was removed. The reason is that it is very buggy, Martin
        Pergel doesn't have time to develop it and code is so messy that no one
        else can understand it.

        If you use links for special purposes (embedded devices, etc.), you can
        bring javascript back by copying javascript files from previous release,
        removing "dnl javascript" lines from configure.in, adding *.c and *.h
        files to Makefile.am and re-running automake and autoconf.
        
        Javascript hooks from main code were not removed --- they just won't be
        maintained.
