PLUS, beta of Play! on Heroku, and Disruptor reaches 2.0.

Eclipse Code Recommenders 0.3 Released

Version 0.3 of Eclipse Code Recommenders, has
been released. In version 0.3, models are downloaded automatically
from the website as needed, whereas previously they shipped on
installation – thus, the download size is reduced. Code completion
based on subwords matching and an integrated documentation
platform, ExtDoc, have also been added for the 0.3 release. Moving
forward, there is a student project that aims to enable developers
to build their own models for libraries, and this feature may be
ready for the 0.4 release of Code Recommenders.

Code Recommenders is a project that aims to provide tools for
automatically analysing large code repositories, and extracting and
integrating data into a context-sensitive IDE.

New Release of Disruptor Concurrent Programming

The Disruptor concurrent programming framework, has reached
version 2.0. This release adds a new API to reflect
naming changes, and the ProducerBarrier has been incorporated into
the RingBuffer. DisruptorWizard has also been integrated, to aid
with API dependency graph construction. The sequence tracking has
been reworked to avoid false sharing on Java 7. The framework can
be downloaded now from Google Code.
