Bug Fixes for Griffon 0.9.3 Beta1

A beta of Griffon 0.9.3 has been announced. This
maintenance release of Griffon 0.9 comes with a new application
archetype, and calling griffon list-plugins will now filter the
list automatically, omitting plugins that do not match the current
development platform. The beta also features a new application
event aware logging appender that can fire events when a logging
statement is received. More information is available at the
Release Notes.

LiveRebel Reaches 1.0

LiveRebel has reached version 1.0. LiveRebel updates code and
resources in place, as oppose to starting a fresh version of the
application side-by-side, and runs compatibility checks
automatically. It supports both WAR and EAR, in addition to Tomcat
(4.x, 5.x, 6.x) JBoss (3.x, 4.x, 5.x) (Jetty 5.x, 6.x) and
WebSphere (6.0.x, 6.1.x, 7.x) There is also beta support for
GlassFish, Resin, SAP NetWeaver, and SpringSource DM Server. A
free 90 day evaluation of LiveRebel is available.

ZK Grails 1.1-M1 With Cloud Foundry Support

Two new releases of ZK Grails are available: 1.0.3, a maintenance release for the 1.0 series, and
ZK Grails 1.1-M1, the first milestone of the 1.1 series. ZK
Grails 1.0.3 supports Grails 1.2.x, 1.3.x and ZK 5.0.7, and has
been tested against Grails version 1.3.7. ZK Grails 1.1-M1 can be
deployed to Cloud Foundry, with plans to support other cloud
environments planned for future releases. The LiveModel artefact
has also been implemented and the Hibernate dependencies have been
extracted out of the code base.

Bug Fixes for Apache Tomcat 7.0.14

Apache Tomcat 7.0.14 has been released. This
release updates MIME type mappings to align with those of Apache
httpd, and adds JAAS authentication support for the
JMXRemoteLifecycleListener. There is also
‘StuckThreadDetectionValve’ which identifies long running requests,
and bug fixes to ensure RemoteIpValve works correctly with Servlet
3.0 asynchronous request, and to ensure that SSLValve provides the
SSL key size as an Integer rather than a String.

JDK7: Rampdown!

Mark Reinhold has announced that the JDK7 team are now only
accepting fixes to “showstopper bugs” ahead of the final release.
This includes possible JCK failures, high-priority feedback on
in-flight JSRs, and hard crashes or loss-of-data bugs likely to
occur in the field.

In the post, Mark Reinhold also addresses the controversial
issue of transparency in the JDK7 development process:

“The JDK 7 development process has not been as transparent as
many people (me included) would have preferred. We’ve made some
changes to address that, but we’ve had to balance the cost of
making significant process changes against the goal of releasing
JDK 7 this summer. In the longer term I fully intend to make the
various JDK 8 planning and development activities much more
transparent, from the beginning.”
