Subject [REPORT] Apache Cayenne, September 2011
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2011 16:38:50 GMT
Apache Cayenne is an open source persistence framework providing 
object-relational mapping (ORM) and remoting services.

Development

Work on 3.0.3 (STABLE) and 3.1 (ALPHA) releases continue.
Artifacts for 3.1 Milestone 3 prepared and awaiting vote for release. 
This release was delayed by changing the build/release procedures to 
be more Maven-centric.

Google Summer of Code: Ksenia Khailenko was mentoring Eshan Sudharaka on 
adding Cayenne Modeler support into Eclipse. The project was completed 
successfully and will now be evolving further within the project.
DocBook migration of the project documentation (currently in Confluence) 
is beginning. We are happy with the toolset so far. Output to html and 
pdf already working, which is an improvement on Confluence.

Web site

Unfinished items from Branding Requirements:

Website Navigation Links: navbar links included, 
link to www.apache.org included -> Needs work. Consider how to rearrange 
navigation to avoid confusion between links which leave the Cayenne site 
and those which don't.
Logos and Graphics: include TM, use consistent product logo on your site -> OK, 
other than 'tm' symbols
Further work on the website styling on hold pending our evaluation of Apache 
CMS  as a replacement for Confluence (for the pages which aren't product 
documentation).

Community

Dzmitry Kazimirchyk added as a committer.

Mailing list activity is above average on developer and user lists. The user
list has seen a spike of questions from newcomers to Cayenne and several of 
the questions led to wide-ranging discussions. Many users are also starting 
to use the 3.1 milestone and asking questions about configuration which 
aren't well documented yet.
