New Versions of JGit and EGit Implementations Released

Version 1.1 of the JGit and EGit implementations of the Git SCM, have been released. JGit 1.1 adds new Git porcelain commands and command options, including ReflogCommand, DeleteTagCommand and DiffCommand, and ResetCommand now supports recursive reset on a particular directory. Shallow cloning support and blame command in the JGit command line, have also been added. Meanwhile, EGit 1.1 adds a new reflog view that supports searching and filtering, and displays the reflog for a particular branch through the hyperlink ref name. The commit dialogue has also been improved, with support for commit ID hyperlinks and content assist for file names displayed in the ‘Files’ section. New features have been added to synchronise view, including the ability to synchronise filtered on folder, and drag and drop staging and unstaging, in the Git Changeset Model.


Bug Fixes for JBoss AS 7.0.2

JBoss AS 7.0.2 has been released. This is a maintenance release, which fixes an issue that caused the Web Console not to display messaging subsystem resources, and a bug that caused an error replicating HTTP session. The console has also been updated to 1.0.0-Beta17. JBoss AS 7.0.2 is available in a ‘Web Profile Only’ Java EE 6 certified package, and a non-Java EE6 Certified package that contains everything, which can be downloaded from the JBoss website.


Blackberry Java SDK 7 Moves Out of Beta

The Blackberry Java SDK 7 is now out of beta. This SDK adds support for the Open GL ES 2.0 standard, and new APIs, including the Native Window API, UDP Multicast API and the Audio Buffering API that allows the application to set the buffer size prior to playback starting. The OpenVG API has also been enhanced to support common OpenVG operation. There are new APIs for integrating applications with BlackBerry smartphone features, including Geofencing APIs that specify geospatial boundaries, and Maps APIs, for adding complex geospatial shapes to a MapField and informing the MapField when their state has changed.

The BlackBerry Java SDK version 7.0 is available through the BlackBerry Java Plugin for Eclipse update site, and requires the BlackBerry Java Plugin for Eclipse 1.3.


Bug Fixes for Android SDK Revision 13

A new release of the Android SDK has been released. Android SDK Revision 13 fixes a list of bugs, including a compilation issue in Ant, a rendering issue when using emulator scaling, and issues that occurred when AVD paths contained spaces. For users developing with Eclipse and ADT, Android SDK Revision 13 requires ADT 12.0.0 and later. Users developing outside of Eclipse, must have Apache Ant 1.8 or later.
