Eclipse Dashboard New Project Lead
Wayne Beaton has announced that he is the new project lead of Eclipse Dashboard, following a period of stagnancy for the project. Eclipse Dashboard is a project for extracting data out of the Eclipse Foundation source code repositories and delivering it in a consumable form. “Dashboard isn’t the sort of project that will be very active. Activity will come in short sprints as we make improvements, and respond to infrastructure changes,” says Beaton.
Spring Data Graph Gets Neo4j Support
Spring Data Graph 1.0.0 M1 has been released with Neo4j support. Spring Data is a project that attempts to facilitate building Spring-powered apps that use “new” data access technologies, for example map-reduce frameworks and cloud-based data services. This milestone comes with AspectJ ITD backed field mapping for plain Java objects, and annotations for graph persistence. Building traversal descriptions and cross-store persistence including basic transaction, are also supported.

This version includes Maven 3.0.2 embedded runtime, and an updated version of Async HTTP Client.

Appcelerator closed on the Aptana acquisition on January 7th, 2011. Aptana’s technology patents, customers, assets, and “most employees” were included as part of the deal.
