Site Updates

I've uploaded the current state of the site build to:


The front page artwork is disabled pending synchronization with the 
content breakdown.  Site docs for Merlin Runtime still to be complete 
include the following:

  * execution models
  * Unit Test package
  * update the <classloader> spec to use <artifact>
  * update the kernel properties page
  * fix target example xml
  * remove proxy info from the kernel definition
  * update repository docs to sync with runtime
  * disable or complete the deployment section

Magic Updates

Magic is now independent of the Avalon svn (i.e. you can use magic for 
whatever you want).  To achieve this separation some of the content that 
was in /central/system has been moved into magic. Secondly, the artifact 
and document cache managed by magic is now located under:

   the value of the MAGIC_HOME environment variable

or if undefined


The top-level build.xml still has a setup target so if you have an 
avalon/truck svn checkout the setting up of magic is:

$ ant setup

Documentation about magic is taking shape and is available under 
"Central" / "Developer Tools" | "Magic".  Magic API docs still need a 
lot of attention but all in all things seem to shaping up nicely.


Building all of Avalon (runtime and site) is:

$ ant

This results in the registration of project artifacts into the main 
cache ${magic.home}/main and the creation of the site documentation 
under ${magic.home}/docs.

Cheers, Steve.
