# Apache Cayenne Board Report, December 2017

## Description

Apache Cayenne is a Java database persistence framework. It takes a
distinct approach to object persistence and provides an ORM runtime,
remote persistence services, and a cross-platform GUI mapping/modeling
tool.

## Issues

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity

Cayenne has had a busy quarter with 3 releases over 3 different
development streams.

- Cayenne 3.1 (stable)
  - Maintenance only.  Cayenne 3.1.2 is a bug-fix release for the
    current stable product line.

- Cayenne 4.0 (development)
  - The second 4.0 beta (4.0.B2) was released.  The API is frozen,
    barring any major issues, and development effort is only for
    bug fixes and documentation leading up to the final release of
    Cayenne 4.0.

- Cayenne 4.1 (development)
  - The first milestone release of Cayenne 4.1 (4.1.M1) brings many
    wanted features, including vastly improved memory utilization,
    elimination of dependencies on external frameworks, an updated
    Cayenne Modeler cross-platform GUI mapping/modeling tool, and
    Java 8 support.

- Website
  - Work is progressing on an updated website with the goal to make
    it cleaner, more modern, and mobile-friendly.

## Health Report

Cayenne is healthy.  The framework is under active development, as
evidenced by three releases the past quarter.  We have a stable user
and developer community.
