The following page has been changed by MarshallSchor:

  === Tika ===
  === UIMA ===
+ UIMA is a component framework for the analysis of unstructured content such as text, audio
and video. UIMA entered incubation on October 3, 2006.
+ Some recent activity:
+     * New Releases: Version 2.2.2 of the base framework and an add-on package of annotators,
plus a simple server for serving the results of running UIMA Annotators as a web service
+     * 3 other components, the Asynchronous Scale-out support (which uses Apache ActiveMQ),
a HotFix for the base 2.2.2, and a new CAS Editor, are currently up for a release vote on
general@i.a.o list.
+     * New sandbox annotators were added that support OpenCalais, a new web service that
does annotations.
+     * Information from a UIMA Workshop held at LREC in Marrakesh, Morocco, was added to
our website; see
+     * One user got UIMA to run on the Apache Hadoop infrastructure, and posted a how-to
guide on the UIMA Wiki.
+     * 3 new parts are being incorporated into the Sandbox with software grants: A Common
Feature Extractor useful for extracting features from CASes to use as training data in machine
learning algorithms, a Concept Mapper - a general dictionary style lookup annotator which
may be eventually combined with another dictionary annotator, and a Cas Viewer Eclipse plug-in
tool, which may be combined with the Cas Editor work.
+ Items to complete before graduation:
+     * We still need to attract more new committers.
+ Community:
+     * We continue to do outreach to attract new contributors, which may become committers.
We hope that the upcoming release of the Annotator Package and UIMA-AS will help.
