Updates All Around for Gliffy

Versions 3.1.0 of the Gliffy Plugin for
Confluence and Gliffy Plugin for JIRA are now available. Both
plugins are now built using Atlassians Plugins 2 SDK, and both
support the tabs feature, previously released to Gliffy Online
users. Both plugins also feature additional ERD Lines in the Entity
Relationship Library, and send-to-back now reverts when new line
type is selected.

Gliffy Online has also been updated so that large uploaded images are now
constrained in proportion to the canvas size.

JRuby 1.5.5 Reacts To Showstopper

addresses some Marshalling issues with MRI and a problem executing
commands on Windows. Jaffl has also been updated for YourKit
compatibility, and interfaces can now be included in a synchronised
class. Please note that due to a “showstopper” bug found after the

All Move for Hyperic 4.5

VMware vFabric Hyperic version 4.5 has been announced. This release
focuses on updating the underlying infrastructure. The Hyperic
codebase has been upgraded to Spring 3.0 and, according to senior
product manager, Charles Lee: “by leveraging the Spring framework
we have reduced Hyperic’s codebase by over 7% and dramatically
decreased code complexity, which allows for faster startup times
and more efficient development.” The team have also added Java 5
constructs, and switched from JBoss to Apache Tomcat, and cite
development time savings on server startup and shutdown following
the move. The code repository has moved from Subversion to Git, and
the build process from Ant to Apache Maven. Newly supported
out-of-the-box are Fabric GemFire 6.5 distributed caching system,
RabbitMQ enterprise messaging system, and the vFabric tc Server
Java runtime server version 2.1.
