Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "August2009" by AndreasLehmkuehler
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2009 16:12:42 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The following page has been changed by AndreasLehmkuehler:

  = PDFBox =
+ Apache PDFBox is an open source Java library for working with PDF documents. PDFBox entered
incubation on February 7th, 2008.
+ The PDFBox project continues doing well. Perhaps due to to the summer break, the development
activities stuck a little bit, but the community itself is growing.
+ A problem was detected with the naming of the previously released FontBox and JempBox Maven
artifacts. Project mentor Jukka Zitting worked around this issue by copying the existing release
artifacts to match the Maven metadata (0.8.0-incubator instead of 0.8.0-incubating). It was
noted that even though a new release vote wasn't strictly necessary for such an action, it
should have been done only based on community consensus.
+ After solving most of the remaining blockers found during the license review we will likely
soon make a release of the main PDFBox library. PDFBox will soon be ready to graduate from
the Incubator.
+ Issues before graduation:
+ * Closing the last recently resolved legal issues found during the license review
+ * Release PDFBox 0.8.0-incubating
+ * Increase community activity
