Subject [REPORT] Apache Cayenne
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 01:00:03 GMT
Apache Cayenne(TM) is an open source persistence framework licensed under the 
Apache License, providing object-relational mapping (ORM) and remoting services.

Development

* 3.1 Milestone 3 release announced on September 27.
* Work on 3.0.3 (Stable/Bug Fixes) and 3.1 (Milestone 4) releases continue.
* Google Summer of Code completed creating a working and usable Eclipse plugin 
  for Cayenne Modeler which now needs to be integrated into the main distribution.
* DocBook migration of Confluence documentation continues.


Web site

Highlighting unfinished items from Branding Requirements 
(per http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/pmcs )
* 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

* Christian Grobmeier published two articles about Cayenne (written in German) 
  in JavaMagazin.  In October, an introductory article about Cayenne and in 
  November, an article illustrating Cayenne's Remote Objects features.

* Mailing list activity is average on developer and user lists. The user list 
  and developer list are both seeing new names appear as more people seem 
  interested in Cayenne and are exploring it.  Also a number of bug reports and 
  patches have filtered into JIRA from these newcomers.
