Mylyn Hudson Connector Now Displays Output in Eclipse
Console

Steffen Pingel has blogged about some new features available in the Mylyn Hudson
connector.

The connector now allows users to view test results of the
latest build for each subscribed plan in the JUnit view, and the
results are cached when the builds view is refreshed, ensuring that
test results are accessible offline. If the corresponding test can
be located in the workspace, it is also possible to re-run tests
locally from the JUnit view. Java stack traces and URLs are now
hyperlinked, and the build output can be displayed in the Eclipse
console. Parameterised builds are also supported. More information,
can be found at the Mylyn
Weekly New & Noteworthy
page.

The Mylyn Hudson connector project aims to bring additional
tooling functionality to Eclipse, including the ability to monitor
build status and create tasks from build results.

Google Code To Allow All OSI-Approved
Licenses

Google have announced that Google Code-hosted projects can
now use any OSI approved license. Previously, Google only supported
a subset of the approved OSI licenses choices. The reasons Google
give for this shift in licensing policy, is that they believe they
can better support the open source community by opening up the
licensing options, and that the previous restrictions resulted in
inconsistencies in how Google reacted to multi-licensed projects
looking for hosting.

Google Code users can now take advantage of a new “other open
source” option in the license selector. Please note that public
domain projects are still only allowed on a case-by-case basis.

Avro Serialisation System Adds New Methods to Server
Interface

Version 1.4.0 of the Avro serialisation system, is now
available.

In this release, a PHP implementation has been added,
TracePlugin gets File-Based Span Storage, and Basic Trace
Collection and Propagation have been added. Avro now supports
Hadoop Mapreduce with Avro data files.

Start and join methods have been added to the server interface,
and the server is no longer started in the constructor. Utf8 has
been changed to implement CharSequence and the specific, generic
and reflect APIs have been altered to accept any CharSequence
implementation for string schemas.

Please see the Changelog for more information.
