eXo have announced their plans to provide a multi-tenant user experience platform for Java systems, eXo Platform 3.5. eXo Platform 3.5 is due for release later this year, and will also feature improvements to its web-based IDE, which should make it easier to write, test and deploy mashups, gadgets, HTML5 and content applications. Developer releases of milestone, alpha and beta versions of the platform will be released prior to general availability. The company also announced eXo Cloud IDE as a private beta. The eXo Cloud IDE hosted development environment allows users to collaboratively develop gadgets and mashups that can be deployed directly to a PaaS. To be considered for the beta, developers must submit a request at the eXo website.

Pete Muir has blogged that he has submitted the JSR proposal for CDI 1.1.

A list of all the issues the team plan to address, can be seen at the ‘New features proposed for CDI 1.1‘ document. According to the blog post, most of the work will be done through the CDI issue tracker and the [email protected] public mailing list.
