I am from Symphony team. I am the architect of IBM Symphony.

It would back to end of 2002 when we started to work on a project
called OpenStorm which was based on 1.4.  Almost ten
from today.

OpenStorm was embedded into Lotus Notes after that. In 2008, Symphony
1.0 was released as an independent application.  Now the
latest release of it is Symphony 3.0.1.

I ever worked on Infobox(It is replaced by property sidebar),
stability, integration (C++ part of Symphony integrated with Eclipse)
and Mac porting
project (Since OO.o updated the license, the Auqua port in Symphony
was made independently before Symphony 3.0).

I also leading the effort of Symphony 3.0. 3.1 was
taken as the base of Symphony 3.0. Then Symphony features/improvements
were reimplemented on it piece by piece from 2009.
