Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Harmony Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by TimEllison:

-  - Mention removal of Analytics tracker.
+ Summary
+ =======
-  - M9 release underway
+ The Apache Harmony community remains healthy and continues to enhance the
+ body of Java runtime technology under its management.  There is a new 
+ project milestone build imminent and a new committer has recently been
+ appointed.  The lack of a JCK continues to be an issue for Harmony.
-  - New Hudson builds
+ Development and Releases
+ ========================
-  - Pack200 compression progressing
+ The Harmony community is focused on improving the quality of the existing
+ code, and completing the last remaining providers and tools usually associated
+ with Java runtimes.  The code is currently undergoing release management
+ towards a Java 5.0 M9 release expected to be declared by the end of this
+ month.  Our last release was in November 2008.
-  - Bug fixing : focus on EUT, and test case enhancements
+ Contributions into the code base are numerous.  New work being delivered
+ in the upcoming release includes:
+  - performance: across multiple areas, including class library improvements
+    and JIT compiler global propagation optimizations, integer MUL/DIV/REM
+    strength reduction, and so on.
+  - pack200: a new implementation of the JSR-200 compression technology
+    for Java bytecodes.
+  - porting work: in the class libraries for AIX and zOS operating systems.
+  - bug fixing: focus on our test case enhancements, and on passing the
+    Eclipse Test Suite.
-  - Performance work : incl global propagation, integer MUL/DIV/REM strength reduction, class
library work
+ We have enhanced the community-hosted builds with new jobs running on the
+ Apache Hudson infrastructure.  This gives a valuable insight into the state
+ of the builds for developers who do not run their own continuous integration
+ server.
-  - AIX and zOS porting changes
+ Security
+ ========
-  - Aleksey Shipilev as new committer
+ No reported security incidents this period.
-  - GSoC discussion underway
+ Community
+ =========
+ We are delighted to have Aleksey Shipilev accept an offer to become a
+ committer for Harmony.  Aleksey has contributed to many areas of Harmony
+ including performance and community discussion over a sustained period.
+ There were no changes to the PMC during this period.  There are currently
+ 39 committers, of which ~14 were active this period.
+ After a discussion around our use of Google Analytics, we decided to remove
+ the analytics tracker code from our website rather than update the privacy
+ policy.
+ The Harmony project intends to participate once again in the Google Summer
+ of Code program, and discussion around suitable projects is underway on
+ the developer mailing list.
