  -                                    <p>Due to the diverse nature of the commons group,
this section has been split up to make it easier to pick out the topics of interest. This
months stories come from the following:</p>
  +                                    <p><i>"The Avalon project is an effort
to create, design, develop and maintain a common framework and set of components for applications
written using the Java language"</i></p>

can only provide a small sampling of what's been going on :)</p>
  +                                                <p>Like many projects at apache,
avalon has been busy discussing how to fit into the new structure that is currently in the
works. Being one of the projects that has suffered most from 'scope creep', there is a lot
to think about [<a href="#Avalon1">1</a>,<a href="#Avalon2">2</a>,<a
href="#Avalon3">3</a>]. With avalon committers on the Incubator and Commons PMCs,
there's definately a promising perspective.</p>
  +                                                <p>There have also been quite a few
bug fixes and enhancements in various places (like Avalon Phoenix now providing good support
for using log4j [<a href="#Avalon4">4</a>] and allowing customizable classloader
trees [<a href="#Avalon5">5</a>]). There's been work integrating catalina and
jo! [<a href="#Avalon6">6</a>] with phoenix.</p>
  +                                                <p>Following extended discussion
[<a href="#Avalon7">7</a>,<a href="#Avalon8">8</a>,<a href="#Avalon9">9</a>],
avalon also gained an implementation of the delegate design pattern.</p>

release, at 1.0, on the first of November.  Technically not October news, but we're so excited

of talk on a new Apache-level project known as the Apache-Commons. Inspired by you know who,
it seeks to provide reusable components with a level of language agnosticism. Figuring out
how the old Jakarta Commons works with the new Apache Commons will probably take up time over
the next half a year.</p>

has been lots of organisational discussion.  After announcing the Japanese translation project
last time round, a similar project in Korean has come to light - a section below has been
devoted to bringing you up to speed on progress.  The lucene guys have been making the usual

  +                <p>There is much talk over a new Clazz project, hiding away in the
Commons-Sandbox. Stephen Colebourne and Dmitri Plotnikov have been leading a set of long threads
on this. Aspects of this may see the BeanUtils project transferring some of its low-level
code over to Lang to assist in Java Reflection.</p>
  +
  +                <p>The Lang project will be consuming some aspects of the Patterns
[located in the sandbox] project's classes.</p>
  +
  +                <p>The FileUpload project has moved from the sandbox to the main
Commons repository. So expect a release to sneak onto the horizon in the next few months here.</p>
  +
  +                <p>October was also home to a lot of talk on a new Apache-level project
known as the Apache-Commons. Inspired by you know who, it seeks to provide reusable components
with a level of language agnosticism. Figuring out how the old Jakarta Commons works with
the new Apache Commons will probably take up time over the next half a year.</p>

for the purpose of phrase searching, placing multiple terms in a single position.  This is
useful with stemmers that produce multiple possible stems for a word. This also permits the
introduction of gaps between terms, so that terms which are adjacent in a token stream will
not be matched by and exact phrase query. This makes it possible, e.g., to build an analyzer
where phrases are not matched over stop words which have been removed. Finally, repeating
a token with an increment of zero can also be used to boost scores of matches on that token.</p>

           <p>The Jakarta Newsletter tries to let people know what's been going on in
the Jakarta subprojects when they have been unable to monitor all of them themselves.  At
the end of each month the various subprojects can submit a summary of what they have been
doing, and the whole thing gets posted on the web site and the announcements mailing list
a few days later.  The current issue can be found at the top of the <a href="#Archive">archive</a>.</p>
   
           <p><strong>I want my own copy!</strong> - subscribe to the <a
href="../mail.html">announcements mailing list</a> and you will receive each issue
as it is completed.</p>
