PLUS, Mojarra 2.1.2 released ahead of GlassFish 3.1.1.

Third Milestone of Spring
Data Document with MongoDB Support 1.0.0

The third milestone of Spring Data Document with
MongoDB Support 1.0.0 is out now. In this release, the
SimpleMongoConverter has been deprecated and will be removed, along
with the concept of a default collection name. All MongoTemplate
methods now execute within the context of a callback method, and
the project updates to QueryDsl version 2.2.0-beta4. More
information is available at the Changelog.


Mojarra 2.1.2 Released Ahead
of GlassFish 3.1.1

Version 2.1.2 of Mojarra has been released. The
team advise that this release should be considered feature complete
with the JavaServer Faces 2.1 specification. JSF views can now be
written in pure XML, which should help ease transition from JSF 1.2
to the latest version of the specification. It also introduces a
Pluggable Facelet cache mechanism, which allows the in-memory cache
of Facelet instances to be served from a cache that can be
overridden with a custom implementation. More information on the
new features, is available at the Release Notes. There is also a list of bug fixes.


Version 2.1.2 is scheduled to be
included in the upcoming 3.1.1 release of GlassFish, and it is
already integrated into the latest promoted build.


Updates for Butterflyzer
Social Media Tool

The fifth alpha of the Butterflyzer tool
for researching, cataloguing, analysing, and visualizing social
media and related events including Twitter and Google Insights, is
now available. Butterflyzer is now available as an Eclipse plugin,
and the integration between toolbars and captions and the graph
visualisation, has been improved:


Buttons for semantically tagged
items have been added, and tags are created for semantics for
various categories that the user creates. When the user clicks on
these items, all the items that relate to the tag within the
browsing context, are displayed. The alpha can be downloaded from
the Butterflyzer


LibreOffice 3.3.3

Version 3.3.3 of The Document Foundation’s
LibreOffice is out now. With version 3.3.3 users can load and save
ODF documents in flat XML, and an “Experimental” mode has been
added, which gives users a place to test currently unfinished
features. A new dialogue box has been added for creating and
managing title pages, and new Lotus Word Pro import filter and SVG
import into Write features have been added. According to TDF
Steering Committee member Thorsten Behrens, this branch will be
maintained until the end of the year, “to allow a smooth and safe
transition to LibreOffice 3.4.x.”


GoodData 54 With New Dashboard Date Filters

Release 54 of GoodData has been announced with
new Dashboard Date Filters, allowing users to create a date-based
filter on their dashboards and allowing viewers to adjust the
selected time frame for reports. All dashboard reports will then be
re-computed to the new timeframe. Users can create a GoodData Sales
Analytics project from SugarCRM data, with a new app that includes
a connector to pull Sugar data and a default template with
out-of-the-box dashboards.

A new tag has been added to the
metric formatting module, that allows users to format how NULL
values appear in their reports, and a User Provisioning API, for
automatically registering new GoodData users.


YouTrack 3.0 with
Customisable Workflow

JetBrains’ YouTrack issue tracker
has reached version 3.0. In this release, the workflow is
now customisable, allowing users to define their own workflow to
automate issue life-cycle management. The set of issue attributes
and their values can also be altered. YouTrack can be integrated
with TestLink, TestRail, and GitHub, and is supplied with the new
built-in JetBrains Database. Issues can be accessed and handled
from mobile devices, and existing projects can now be imported from
any bug tracker. More information is available at the YouTrack
What’s New‘ page.
