Seam 3.0 CR1 Brings Module Documentation
Together

The first release candidate of Seam 3.0 has been announced,
comprising of a list of Seam modules, including Seam Catch, Seam
Wicket and Seam Solder. The Seam team have worked to bring all
modules in line with the established module standards, for the Seam
3.0 CR1 release. The API documentation and reference documentation
has also been consolidated into a single document, as oppose to a
separate document for each included module, and the source code has
been included in a single, exploded directory structure. The next
release will be CR2, which will add Seam Forge. Forge allows users to interact with the
project via plugins written using CDI.

Gradle 1.0 M1 With New JUnit Test Report

The first milestone of Gradle 1.0 has been
released. This milestone adds a new ‘application’ plugin that takes
charge of bundling the main-method application into a distribution,
and provides tasks for running the application directly from the
build. The JUnit test report has been reworked, and build scripts
are now executed using Ant 1.8.2 and Groovy version 1.7.8. Please
note that Gradle 1.0 Milestone 1 contains some breaking changes regarding the Eclipse and IDEA
plugins.

Bug Fixes for Rails 3.0.5

Version 3.0.5 of Rails has been released with
new tests and a list of bug fixes, including fixes for broken links
and AM tests. A full list of the fixes, is available at the Rails
GitHub.

ZooKeeper-Based Noah Application Registry
Launched

Noah is a new Apache ZooKeeper-based application
registry, which attempts to port the ZooKeeper concepts into a
stateless RESTful application. Noah will offer support for
horizontal scaling, and RESTful interaction for operations where
REST maps properly. It will also support the basic concepts of
hosts, services, applications and configurations, and will minimise
the external requirements to maximise the possible installation
options.

Bug Fixes for Scalate 1.4.1 Template Engine

Version 1.4.1 of the Scalate template engine
has been announced. Scalate 1.4.1 is based on Scala 2.8.1 and is
primarily a bug fix release. It adds a scala-library dependency to
scalate-util, although users can choose to exclude this dependency
due to different Scala versions. A scalate-web dependency has also
been added, and the Spring MVC integration has been updated so that
the contentType works.

Third Milestone for Spring Data Graph 1.0

The Spring Data Graph 1.0 project with Neo4j support has
released a third milestone. Spring Data Graph 1.0.0.M3 upgrades
to Neo4j-1.3.M03 and AspectJ 1.6.11.M2, and adds bean validation
support for property changes and support for external transaction
manager. A full featured Neo4jTemplate has also been added.

POJO-Based Atmosphere Framework Version 0.7

Version 0.7 of the Atmosphere POJO based
framework, has been released. In this release, the Atmosphere-GWT
project is now fully integrated into Atmosphere. Atmosphere-GWT
implements a JavaScript webbrowser client build in GWT, and a
server component build on top of Atmosphere. This new integration
gives users the option of adding support for WebSocket/Comet to GWT
applications. Atmosphere 0.7 users can also broadcast Callable, and
the Atmosphere JQuery Plugin can be configured to use an external
WebSocket implementation. Atmosphere version 0.8 is currently
scheduled for release “before the summer,” and will feature support
for Socket.IO, Cometd 2.2.x and Google App Engine channel
support.
