Subject [ANN] Apache Forrest 0.2 Released
Date Sat, 16 Nov 2002 13:50:05 GMT
The Forrest team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Forrest
0.2.

  Introduction & History
  ----------------------

Forrest is an XML standards-oriented project documentation framework
based on Apache Cocoon, providing XSLT stylesheets and schemas, images
and other resources. Forrest uses these to render the XML source content
into a website via command-line, robot, or a dynamic web application. 

This is Forrest's first public release.  Forrest was originally
envisioned [1] as a Sourceforge-like documentation management framework
for xml.apache.org projects.  Eleven months later, Forrest is a much more
focused, generic system.

 - All xml.apache.org assumptions have been eliminated: Forrest can be
   used in any project.
 - Forrest's cross-project goals have been put on hold while effort is
   put into making Forrest a good single-project tool.


  Status
  ------

Forrest is currently experiencing rapid growth, and this release is made
in the spirit of "release early and often".  To quote from the release
notes:

  This 0.2 release is believed to be stable, and is in use by many
  projects (including xml.apache.org).  However, forrest-dev explicitly
  DOES NOT intend to maintain the degree of accountability and
  backwards-compatibility intended for future 0.x releases.  This 0.2
  release is made primarily to meet user demand, to solicit feedback, and
  to give the Forrest community a trial run in the process of Forrest
  releases.


  Downloads
  ---------

Forrest 0.2 can be downloaded in binary or source form from:

  http://cvs.apache.org/~jefft/forrest/releases/0.2/

Please also take time to read the release notes:

  http://cvs.apache.org/~jefft/forrest/releases/0.2/RELEASE-NOTES-0.2.txt

which contains important information about known bugs.


  Feedback
  --------

Please send all feedback to the forrest-dev@xml.apache.org mailing list [2].


Thanks for your attention,


  The Apache Forrest team
