As I say, it's now in the trunk. It hasn't made it into the up-coming 
qpid 0.22 release, but it should make it into 0.24. For info the 0.22 
release will feature some nifty changes to the web site - though I guess 
it still won't mention the GUI 'cause it's not in 0.22.

To date there aren't massive differences to the last version attached to 
the original Jira post, mainly tweaks and some tidying up. Since I 
actually committed it I've spent most of my available time doing the 
Java Broker QMF stuff. TBH I think that was a wise move because getting 
a grip on management is one of the "strategic" things that needs to be 
properly sorted and as much by accident as design (I started out doing 
the Java Broker QMF plugin as a bit of fun to see if I could :-)) it 
ended up stirring things up a little and giving some decent food for 

There's an awful lot of changes afoot wrt. management, Rob Godfrey has 
been beavering away at OASIS on the AMQP 1.0 Management Specification - 
you may have seen his post a few weeks ago? Trying to evolve towards 
that without breaking all the existing QMF tooling is going to be an 
*interesting* journey :-) I'm still musing over it (AKA procrastinating 
big time).

Another thing that's likely to start happening more is increasing 
"componentisation". So that's already happened with Proton, but I think 
it's likely to happen with other aspects (including/especially) management.

In many ways the Java Broker is way ahead of the curve there because of 
the plug-in architecture (It turned out to be surprisingly easy to write 
the QMF plugin despite having no experience of the Java Broker and a 
slightly moving target as the plugin API evolved). Unfortunately the QMF 
stuff in the C++ broker is somewhat more coupled in with the core broker 
code base. I think there's a general view that it'd be good to decouple 
and move it to a plug-in, but I'm not aware of any concrete plans on 
that front yet. IMHO that's a pretty essential prerequisite for moving 
towards AMQP 1.0 Management as plugins/shims are our friends when it 
comes to "dual-stacking" QMF and AMQP 1.0 Management. Unfortunately my 
C++ is currently rusty/lousy so I doubt I can help there.

Hopefully you are still finding the UI useful? Unfortunately it got me a 
bit hooked on HTML5 and I've recently got a bit sidetracked trying to 
push the boundaries a bit, one of my side-projects is an HTML5 VNC 
client that I'm messing with as a forerunner to having a go at doing an 
HTML5 X11 Server - unfortunately there aren't enough hours in the day to 
do everything I'd like :-)
