Subject Re: Apache Incubator report for October
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2008 23:49:56 GMT

I've just installed two 2.8.0 beta sites and things are so far going
smoothly. Since I'm using custom templates I had to add the IE hack
discussed recently but apart from that no issues have arisen. I did
have one Permgen memory problem but I think I've traced that to my
own code. The jspwiki_module.xml solution for plugins seems a bit
fragile (missing plugin classes seem to cause startup failures, still
investigating this) but I'm living with it.
