Ajax + Mobile ZK Framework 5.0.6 Released

The Ajax + Mobile ZK framework has reached version 5.0.6. In this release, it is possible to implement an application-specific SEO renderer that can output generated content for indexing by search engines, without this being visible to end users. Originally, SEO was implemented through the crawlable option. DefaultTreeModel has been introduced to simplify TreeModel, which provides a mutable and sortable tree model for tree data. This release comprises of over 120 off-the-shelf Ajax components.

In related news, ZK Spring 3 is now available for testing. This project provides an open source library integrating the Spring framework with ZK. It can be downloaded now from Google Code.

Clojure Framework Compojure 0.6.0 Released

Version 0.6.0 of the Compojure web framework for Clojure, is now available on GitHub.

The compojure.handler namespace provides functions for adding certain middleware functions to routes.

The Document Foundation Reaches Race for Funds Target

After announcing a fifty-thousand Euro “race for funds” last week, the Document Foundation has reached its target, with some 2,000 donors contributing the money needed to establish the Foundation as a legal entity in Germany.

“We still can’t believe it,” says Florian Effenberger, Steering Committee member. “It happened in such a short period of time and was beyond our wildest expectations. You all really rock! On behalf of the Community, the Steering Committee would like to thank all the donors for their generous support.”
