Subject Re: [doc] improving porting matrix for Hamony
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 14:53:26 GMT
Hi,
i finally focused on the Supported Platforms page, and created a draft
version [1]. the page consists of a table similar to old Roadmap table +
list of specific windows/linux OSes copied from the Wiki page [2] created by
Alexey Varlamov a while ago.
The info may be inaccurate or incomplete. Please respond to this mail or
edit the site directly to update. Is there anything else you wanted to add
to the topic?

[1] http://harmony.apache.org/supported_platforms.html
