Subject [VOTE] Release Apache UIMACPP-2.2.2-incubating
Date Thu, 11 Sep 2008 22:42:54 GMT
Hi Everyone,

Please review and vote on approving the first release of Apache *UIMACPP*,
the C++ version of the *UIMA* framework. The release artifacts and the
annotated RAT reports can be found here:
http://people.apache.org/~eae/uimacpp-release-candidates/2.2.2/03/<http://people.apache.org/%7Eschor/uima-release-candidates/uima-as/08>

<http://people.apache.org/%7Eschor/uima-release-candidates/uima-as/08>

UIMACPP makes it easy to create UIMA-compliant component from C++ analytics.
This is extremely important for multimodal analytics such as speech-to-text,
machine translation, image analysis, and many others.
 As a C++ library, UIMACPP also enables creating UIMA compliant components
in other programming languages which easily link to C++. Included in this
release is support for *Perl*, *Python* and *Tcl* via a common *SWIG*wrapper.

UIMACPP utilizes several other Apache projects: *APR*, *Xerces-c* and *
ActiveMQ-CPP*. Another, and final dependency, is *ICU4C* from
icu-project.org.

An official release of UIMACPP was delayed until a mechanism was in place to
run C++ analytics as native processes; *UIMA-AS* has finally provided that
mechanism. Previously, UIMACPP analytics had to be run under a JVM process
through the JNI, which put many restrictions on operability.

The *UIMA* project dev-list vote to release *UIMACPP* was 6 +1's, and no
other votes; see the vote here:

Many thanks for your support,
Eddie Epstein
