Further Settlement Talks for Google and

Oracle and Google may have failed to reach a settlement in the
first two mediation sessions, but they’re being recalled for a third attempt on October 1st. It
is unclear whether the two CEOs are required to personally attend
this third meeting. Google and Oracle’s CEOs, Larry Ellison and
Larry Page, were ordered to participate in settlement talks earlier
this month – although Google initially proposed Andy Rubin, Senior
Vice President of Mobile at Google, and Kent Walker, Vice President
and General Counsel of Google, attend on behalf of the CEO, the
Judge ordered Larry Page to attend the talks.


Clojure 1.3 Released

Clojure 1.3 has been released. In this version,
the error handling and error messages have both been improved, and
the walk support has been modified to work on sorted-by
collections. The Interrupt Handler has been promoted to
clojure.repl, which eliminates the need for a dependency on old
contributions, and running -main namespaces from clojure.main is
now supported. This means users can now write -main functions that
work the same way, regardless of whether the code is AOT-compiled
for use in an executable jar, or run from the source. More
information on the changes, is available at the Changes file.
