+ Apache River is a distributed computing architecture, based on the JSK Starter Kit Source
code donated by Sun Microsystems, for the Jini Specification. While generally referred to
as a Service Architecture, it might be more easily explained to those familiar with Dependency
Injection as a Protocol Independent, Distributed Dependency Injection Architecture, suited
to both hardware and software. Instead of depending on Protocols directly for communication,
everything is abstracted behind a Java interface, allowing protocols and implementations to
be swapped freely, programming languages other than Java can also participate.
+ 
+ River has been incubating since December 2006.
+ 
+ The activity on the River project continues to grow and is seeing renewed interest from
people who had previously fallen silent.  The current development team feels that we are ready
to start the Graduation process to a TLP
+ 
+ The next release 2.2.0 is scheduled for January, this is likely to be a bug-fix release
and will hopefully be our last release before graduation.
+ 
+ New functionality and enhancements has currently been suspended in favour of bug-fixes and
the work towards graduation.  The following rough road map has been provisionally agreed
+ 
+  * Graduation as top level project river.apache.org
+  * Rename com.sun namespace to org.apache.river
+  * Modular build & JDK policy
+ 
+ After this has been completed then the previous work on new functionality and enhancements
will be picked up again.  These will include;
+ 
+  * Dynamic Grants at Runtime, based on CodeSource, Code Signer Certificate chains , ProtectionDomain
or ClassLoader
+  * Dynamic Revoke of Grant's at Runtime
+  * Securing proxy downloads and unmarshalling
+ 
+ Additionally work is continuing on the build and test environments.  The project has recently
been able to run all the categories of the QA tests which is a significant accomplishment,
but it does make for a rather long test sequence.  They have highlighted several bugs which
have been fixed.  More of the JTREG tests are also passing after fixes to the environment
and the tests themselves
+ 
+ The website has been moved to the new Apache CMS environment and has seen further increases
in the level of documentation available, particular articles which are useful to people starting
to use and develop River
+ 
+ 3 most important issues:
+ * List future River PMC members and select the initial PMC chair
+ * Prepare the TLP graduation resolution
+ * Vote on graduation
