few months).  That said, you may have noticed a whole bunch of Shiro activity recently - Shiro
JIRA emails, confluence activity, etc., and this is due to some new very exciting news.

has decided to join us here at Stormpath in a full time position.  With this role, Stormpath
will be investing in the Shiro project and its community with a full time resource!

team over the years, but only as part-time engineers.  We have always had full-time day jobs
and couldn't dedicate 100% of our time to it.  But at least now in Brian's case, he gets to
spend all of his work time on it too (and I'm jealous! :) ).

Shiro JIRA backlog, specifically issues with patches that have been sitting for a while, and
get a 1.3 release out. If there is a particular issue or patch you have been working around
for a while please let the dev team know.

the community with educational content and upgrading the Shiro website.

out the door faster.  Like all Apache projects, Shiro will *always* be run "The Apache Way"
- it is a meritocracy and each Apache Shiro committee member will continue to manage Apache
Shiro the same way we have since project inception.  Stormpath just sees Shiro as a complementary
technology that helps Stormpath customers, so it was a natural fit for us to hire someone
to help with Shiro full-time.  It is no different than, say, the many IBM employees that are
full-time employees dedicated to other Apache projects (e.g. like Tomcat).
> Additionally, Stormpath has no plans to make a 'commercial' version of Shiro - so don't
worry about that.  All Shiro work will be 100% open and contributed back to the community
under the Apache 2.0 license (again, as we've always done).
> So, in summary, there is *no* change to Shiro, its team, its management, or its community
other than getting dedicated, full-time help! :)
