A brief listing of some of the news around the ASF this past month.
- Adobe is in talks to purchase Day Software. You can read the Redmonk’er CotÃ©’s analyst view of how the products compliment each other, a good ComputerWorld overview article, or can read Bertrand’s or Jukka’s great community analysis, or just see Bertrand’s delicious.
- Greg Stein was awarded an O’Reilly Open Source Award. While Greg has his own large pitcher of accomplishments elsewhere, he’s also a significant contributor at the ASF, currently serving as a Director and VP, and also partly to credit for Subversion becoming Apache Subversion.
- Apache FOP has released 1.0! FOP has been around a long time, one of the major XSL Formatting Objects processors, and deserve their moment in the sun for organizing a complete 1.0 release.
- Apache Cayenne released 3.0, and include a fact sheet of the newest features in their ORM product.
- Apache Tomcat released 7.0, implementing the latest Servlet 3.0, JSP 2.2, and Expression Language (EL) 2.2 specs, and getting lots of coverage.
Oh, and the ASF elected a new board of directors as well – there are some different (and one new) faces, but overall, we expect steady sailing into better waters.
