Two Apache Projects Enter the Attic.......
The Jakarta project have announced two retirements.
The Apache Jakarta ORO project and the Jakarta ECS project have both been retired, due to lack of development activity. The latter was used for generating elements for various markup languages, and directly supported HTML 4.0 and XML. Jakarta ORO consisted of a set of text-processing classes that provided Perl5 compatible regular expressions, AWK-like regular expressions, glob expressions, and utility classes for performing tasks such as substitutions and splits. Both projects have now entered the Apache Attic.
…...and One Apache Project Enters the Incubator
But, while these two projects enter the Attic, a new Apache project has been accepted into the Incubator. Isis builds on the Naked Objects Framework and its sister projects. It will provide a framework for developing and deploying domain-driven applications.
Substance, Flamingo and Trident Support Suspended
At the Nabble forum, Kirill Grouchnikov has announced that he is suspending support for his Substance, Flamingo and Trident projects, and their related plugins and demos. He states that he has no plans to delete the projects themselves or any downloadable binaries, or allow others to take over managing the projects.
Trident is an animation library, Substance is a Java look and feel library for Swing, while the Flamingo Swing component suite provides a Swing implementation of the Office 2007 ribbon container and related components.
