Plus, OpenCore 6.0.BETA.12 with new probe plugin, and JDK 6u23 released.

Apache HTTP Server 2.3.8-alpha Tests New

The Apache HTTP Server has reached 2.3.8-alpha.

This release is primarily to test new features and technology
that are judged incompatible or too large for the stable 2.2.x
branch. It is expected that this will be the last alpha release, as
the Apache HTTP Server team are planning to move into beta before
releasing 2.4.0-GA.

Apache HTTP Server 2.3.8-alpha includes the Apache Portable
Runtime (APR) 1.4.2 and APR-Util 1.3.9 in a separate -deps tarball,
and builds on the Apache 2.2 API. Consequently, the APR libraries
must be upgraded and modules written for Apache 2.2 will need to be
recompiled for use with 2.3.8-alpha.

OpenCore 6.0.BETA.12 With New Probes Plugin

The twelfth public beta release of OpenCore 6.0 has been

OpenCore 6.0.BETA.12 includes the new ‘queues’ probes plugin,
which prints currently queued probes in order of queue size, at set
time intervals. OpenCore is a distribution of the Probes and
Metrics Open API, runtime, extensions and AOP SDK, which targets
server-side integration.

Bug Fixes for HttpComponents HttpCore

The Apache HttpComponents team have released HttpComponents HttpCore 4.1-beta2.

HttpCore is a set of low level HTTP transport components for
building custom client and sever side HTTP services. It supports
both event driven I/O model based on Java NIO and blocking I/O
model based on the classic Java I/O and non-blocking.

This is a bug fix release, which addresses issues with
non-blocking connections triggering events by mistake when the
underlying session was already closed, and entity enclosing
requests if no matching request handler was found. It also improves
the compatibility of NIO components with Google Android.

First Beta of Weld 1.1.0

The first beta of Weld 1.1.0 is out now.

It’s based on the CDI 1.0 API and supports Servlet containers
such as Tomcat and Jetty. This beta release features around 60 bug
fixes, a new proxy layer and some improvements to error reporting.
It also features testing support via Arquillian.

Weld 1.1.0.Beta1 will be included in the next release of JBoss
AS 6.0.

JDK 6u23 Released

JDK 6u23 build is now available.

This release fixes bugs in the menu item layout, and fixes
JButton title, which was truncating for some strings irrespective
of preferred size. It can be downloaded now from Java.net. More information is
available at the Changelog.
