Further Settlement Talks for Google and Oracle

Oracle and Google may have failed to reach a settlement in the first two mediation sessions, but they’re being recalled for a third attempt on October 1st. It is unclear whether the two CEOs are required to personally attend this third meeting. Google and Oracle’s CEOs, Larry Ellison and Larry Page, were ordered to participate in settlement talks earlier this month – although Google initially proposed Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President of Mobile at Google, and Kent Walker, Vice President and General Counsel of Google, attend on behalf of the CEO, the Judge ordered Larry Page to attend the talks.


Clojure 1.3 Released

Clojure 1.3 has been released. In this version, the error handling and error messages have both been improved, and the walk support has been modified to work on sorted-by collections. The Interrupt Handler has been promoted to clojure.repl, which eliminates the need for a dependency on old contributions, and running -main namespaces from clojure.main is now supported. This means users can now write -main functions that work the same way, regardless of whether the code is AOT-compiled for use in an executable jar, or run from the source. More information on the changes, is available at the Changes file.
