The "July2011" page has been changed by RainerDoebele:

  Over the past few months work has been done on integration and usage of the Apache Portable
Runtim (APR) in Celix.
  The work has mostly focusses on stability and robustness of the codebase, but some new features
were added:
-

      Log Service and Writer: for logging and reading the log
      Service Factories: needed for the log service

  Empire-db
  
- (project add text here)
+ Apache Empire-db is a relational database abstraction layer that allows developers to take
a more SQL-centric approach in application development than traditional ORM frameworks. Its
focus is to allow highly efficient database operations in combination with a maximum of compile-time-safety
and DBMS independence. Empire-db has entered Incubation in August 2008.
+ 
+ After having published our 2.1.0 release in April, things went a bit slower during the last
quarter. Recently our committers have fixed smaller issues and we have made the empire-db
code base available on git.
+ 
+ We regularly receive user requests on our user list asking for help and or improvements.
Some users submitted small patches through Jira.
+ For the next term we have planned to start a major API improvement which might help making
Empire-db attractive for even more users.
