Subject Geronimo 1.1 Press Release
Date Fri, 23 Jun 2006 14:37:19 GMT
Here is the revised press release for Geronimo 1.1.  This incorporates all feedback received.

PMC members, may I forward this to the PRC or will someone from the PMC send this?   I will
update 
the Apache site with the distribution on Saturday.  I plan to update the Geronimo Web Site
on Monday 
and it would be good to put out the Press Release on Tuesday or whatever time after that is
reasonable.

Advise as to how you would like this communicated to the PRC.

Cheers,

Matt


Apache Software Foundation Announces Release of
Apache Geronimo Version 1.1

Usability Improvements Simplify Configuration and Deployment of J2EE Applications

(City, State)  June xx, 2006 -- The Apache Software Foundation is pleased to announce the
release of 
Apache Geronimo Version 1.1, an open source, application server from the Apache community.
The 
release continues the J2EE certification path led by the previous version of Geronimo, providing
a 
fully compliant and usable J2EE container suitable for everything from development to Enterprise

deployments.

Apache Geronimo v1.1 introduces several structural changes improving scalability, portability
and 
overall organization, as well as including new features and functionality.  Enhancements have
been 
made to the administration console including memory utilization graphics and plugins to improve

usability.  Also, improvements have been made to the innovative configuration and 
administration/plug-in architecture.

Whereas the previous version offered a full J2EE configuration, v1.1 includes a “Little
G” 
configuration, a smaller footprint web-oriented version of Geronimo that can be scaled up
to JMS or 
full J2EE using plug-ins as users’ needs change.  The addition of Little G provides an option
for 
those who want to use Geronimo for lightweight applications without the additional installation

overhead.

One of the main goals of Apache Geronimo is flexibility.  Geronimo is flexible enough to include

only the capabilities that users want and need.  Geronimo already offers a modular architecture
that 
makes it easy to create custom distributions with custom feature sets.  With v1.1, we (the
Apache 
Geronimo Team) looked at users’ needs and added even more features to benefit those needs,
increase 
functionality, and extend usability.

The flexible, easy to use, and easy-to-configure application server is built from best-of-breed
open 
source components and is fully licensed under the business-friendly Apache Software License
offering 
multiple benefits to organizations and their development teams. The software is available
for 
download from the Apache Geronimo web site (http://geronimo.apache.org/).
