+ Apache Shiro is a powerful and flexible open-source application security framework that
+ cleanly handles authentication, authorization, enterprise session management and
+ cryptography.
+ Apache Shiro has been incubating since June 2008.
+ * Due to potential naming conflicts with the previously chosen name of 'Ki', the
+ ASF community at large helped us change our name to 'Shiro'.  This was a large
+ collaborative effort that really showed the power of the Apache Way and resulted
+ in a name with which a large majority of people were content.
+ * Project infrastructure has been switched over to support this name change and
+  all seems to be running well.  We have yet to properly configure Hudson for
+  continuous integration builds, but that should be done shortly.  The new CWIKI
+  space is available here:
+ * The name change also affords us to start publishing incubator Maven snapshot builds
+  which will help foster adoption to all Maven end-users (which there are many).
+ * We're very happy to report that the the name change and community support resulting
+ from it have allowed the development team to return focus to developing the framework
+ and resolving issues rather than spending time on name-related administrative issues.
+ The project team is not considering graduation at this point, as the code is
+ not ready for an Apache release. Once IP clearance is complete, and Mavne snapshots are
+ working, we'll attempt our first incubator release.
+ The status is being maintained at
