Subject Re: Axis2/C vs Axis2/C unofficial
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:54:56 GMT
    We started Axis2/C unofficial project as an alternative between 1.6
branch and trunk, in order to use it as a part in another project.

    Additionally there are some additional bugfixes and features (JSON,
some memory leaks and stability fixes) that weren't implemented on trunk.

    This version is more stable that the current ones in the official
repository, and it keeps mostly the same interface (so you will be able to
switch back to the official repository once a new release emerges) ... I'm
currently using it in production environments (mostly in the client side)

     I completely agree with Thomas idea, the idea is to merge the
repositories and release a new official version, right now the unofficial
repository is just a workaround to have a stable version with a couple more
features than 1.6.0 for another project.
