Subject [REPORT] HttpComponents PMC - November 2008
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2008 19:16:55 GMT
Status report for the Apache HttpComponents project - 12/2008
-------------------------------------------------------------

-- Status --

This is the fourth report in a row so there's nothing really new, except
for some end-of-year numbers.

-- Releases --

We have had one release since the last report:

   19 October 2008 - HttpComponents HttpCore 4.0 beta 3

We are also currently in the process of voting on a release candidate  
for
HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0 beta 2.

In total we have had seven releases this year:

   24 January 2008 - HttpComponents HttpCore 4.0 beta 1
   25 February 2008 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0 alpha 3
   07 May 2008 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0 alpha 4
   17 June 2008 - HttpComponents HttpCore 4.0 beta 2
   29 August 2008 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0 beta 1
   19 October 2008 - HttpComponents HttpCore 4.0 beta 3
   ?? December 2008 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0 beta 2 (TBD)

-- Community --

As indicated in the last report, we have finally restored access for one
of our committers from the early days at Jakarta, Sean Sullivan, at the
beginning of November.

All in all the project made good progress over the year: several new
contributors joind the project as committers and the overall usage of  
the
project gained new heights (especially due to some prominent users like
Google Android and Limewire). We were also able to induce some press
interest and, in the end, even received an award.

-- Development --

Actual development has slowed down a little bit after the latest release
but we were able to make valuable progress on the documentation.

The 'norobots' codebase (which was inherited as an experiment) also  
finally
found a new home at the Droids project currently in icubation.

The user as well as the developer communities are still as vibrant as  
ever.
