Confluence TableFilter Plugin 1.0.3 For Filtering Data
The Confluence TableFilter Plugin is designed for the filtration of data in tables. The filters can be applied to several fields simultaneously, by specifying the names of said fields. The list of possible values for filtration is extracted from the table itself, meaning there is no need for manual specification.
This version supports Confluence 2.8-3.3 and fixes a bug which barred users from filtering two equal tables on the same page.
Rails 3.0 Final – Released Within The Week?
The second release candidate for Rails 3.0 is out now – and, unless any major problems are discovered in Rails 3.0 RC2, the final release is scheduled for later this week. Furthermore, the two new main dependencies of Rails 3.0 (Bundler and ARel) have entered release candidacy for their 1.0 releases, and will be released in final form on the same day as Rails 3.0.
In Rails 3.0 RC2 a list of bugs have been addressed, including mistaken deprecation solutions; query values being converted to_s instead of to_yaml; and whitespace errors.
New Mylyn Hudson Connector for Providing Build Views
A first version of the new Mylyn Hudson Connector is now available from the Mylyn weekly incubator update site.
The Hudson connector is based on the Mylyn Builds framework, and provides a Builds view for displaying the status and health of subscribed jobs using colour coding and weather icons. It also features a decoration icon that shows the overall status when the view is in fast-view mode. All selected jobs are shown and monitored in the Builds view.
Please note that the connector is still under development, and it is likely that the data model will change in future releases.

The Adobe AIR launchpad is currently in beta on the Adobe Labs website.
