Third Milestone of Spring Data Document with MongoDB Support 1.0.0

The third milestone of Spring Data Document with MongoDB Support 1.0.0 is out now. In this release, the SimpleMongoConverter has been deprecated and will be removed, along with the concept of a default collection name.

Mojarra 2.1.2 Released Ahead of GlassFish 3.1.1

Version 2.1.2 of Mojarra has been released. The team advise that this release should be considered feature complete with the JavaServer Faces 2.1 specification. JSF views can now be written in pure XML, which should help ease transition from JSF 1.2 to the latest version of the specification. It also introduces a Pluggable Facelet cache mechanism, which allows the in-memory cache of Facelet instances to be served from a cache that can be overridden with a custom implementation. More information on the new features, is available at the Release Notes. There is also a list of bug fixes.


Version 2.1.2 is scheduled to be included in the upcoming 3.1.1 release of GlassFish, and it is already integrated into the latest promoted build.


Updates for Butterflyzer Social Media Tool

The fifth alpha of the Butterflyzer tool for researching, cataloguing, analysing, and visualizing social media and related events including Twitter and Google Insights, is now available. Butterflyzer is now available as an Eclipse plugin, and the integration between toolbars and captions and the graph visualisation, has been improved:


Buttons for semantically tagged items have been added, and tags are created for semantics for various categories that the user creates. When the user clicks on these items, all the items that relate to the tag within the browsing context, are displayed. The alpha can be downloaded from the Butterflyzer homepage.


LibreOffice 3.3.3 Released

Version 3.3.3 of The Document Foundation’s LibreOffice is out now. With version 3.3.3 users can load and save ODF documents in flat XML, and an “Experimental” mode has been added, which gives users a place to test currently unfinished features. A new dialogue box has been added for creating and managing title pages, and new Lotus Word Pro import filter and SVG import into Write features have been added. According to TDF Steering Committee member Thorsten Behrens, this branch will be maintained until the end of the year, “to allow a smooth and safe transition to LibreOffice 3.4.x.”


GoodData 54 With New Dashboard Date Filters

Release 54 of GoodData has been announced with new Dashboard Date Filters, allowing users to create a date-based filter on their dashboards and allowing viewers to adjust the selected time frame for reports. All dashboard reports will then be re-computed to the new timeframe. Users can create a GoodData Sales Analytics project from SugarCRM data, with a new app that includes a connector to pull Sugar data and a default template with out-of-the-box dashboards.

A new tag has been added to the metric formatting module, that allows users to format how NULL values appear in their reports, and a User Provisioning API, for automatically registering new GoodData users.


YouTrack 3.0 with Customisable Workflow

JetBrains’ YouTrack issue tracker has reached version 3.0. In this release, the workflow is now customisable, allowing users to define their own workflow to automate issue life-cycle management. The set of issue attributes and their values can also be altered. YouTrack can be integrated with TestLink, TestRail, and GitHub, and is supplied with the new built-in JetBrains Database. Issues can be accessed and handled from mobile devices, and existing projects can now be imported from any bug tracker. More information is available at the YouTrack ‘What’s New‘ page.
