Can I please ask everybody to check her (his) mailing list subscriptions at http://xircles.codehaus.org. It looks like, due to the Codehaus problems a few weeks ago, we might have lost some (though not many) mailing list subscriptions.

Jira and notifications

This is a short message for those who have created Jira issues in the past two or three months or so, or have commented upon existing issues.

It looks like during some Jira upgrade a few months ago, a couple of Jira settings got disabled. As a result, the original reporter of a Jira issue did not get notified about any changes to the issue (incl. e.g. state changes, comments, questions, etc.).

I have now reconfigured the notification scheme attached to the Castor Jira instance so that the following entities will receive notification emails upon a change to an issue:

- The SCM mailing list (somewhat high traffic)
- The reporter of the issue
- The assignee of the issue
- All watchers.

I hope that this will shorten feedback loops substantially in the future, and I would like to ask people who created issues in the last two or three months to 'manually' scan the issues they created for updates et alias.

Castor up again ...

As you might (not) have noticed, all the project-related infrastructure (mailing lists, SVN repository, HTML docs, binaries etc.) has been off-line due to a hard disk failure on one of the Codehaus servers. As a result of a lot of dedication from the Codehaus folks, we are as of now in a position to re-start life as usual.

Please note that there's still a few minor issues related to things being setup and/or re-instated as we speak. As such, we won't be updating some HTML docs immediately, as a few things have not come to reach final stability yet.

Please watch this page and the mailing list(s) for more updates.

Castor and Google Summer of Code

We are proud to participate in the Summer of Code initiative sponsored by Google, and you are invited to join in the fun.

At Codehaus, you'll find some suggestions we find suitable for the program, and per definition we would be glad to support a few projects.

Please understand, though, that mentoring capacities will be limited, though we will try to dedicate as much time as possible to the suggested projects. That implies that we depend on your dedication during the preparation of the detailed specification and description of the outcome.

The timeframe for applications is May 1 - May 8. So have a look at the projects at offer, before you sign up to the program and apply as a student to be mentored by us.

Support for polymorphism - A test drive

One of the major short-comings of Castor JDO always has been missing support for polymorphism. After the 0.9.6 release back in Februray, which mainly focused on bug fixing, we decided to tackle this missing feature and start work for adding support for polymorphism to Castor JDO. For a complete history of the work done so far and the tests conducted, please have a look at bug 1881.

As of last week, most of the work (originally initiated by myself) has been finished, and we are now in a position where we'd like to ask you, our users, for feedback. In other words, we think that the current implementation is stable enough to make it available as described below. But as we want to get this new feature as stable as possible before heading for a new release (most likely 0.9.7, but maybe 1.0), we now need feedback from our users.

To facilitate this, I've made available binaries here. Please use the source distribution if possible, as it contains the tests mentioned above as well.

Message boards are typically more user-friendly than mailing lists as they keeps the information in a much more organized fashion and don't add to our ever increasing inboxes.
The mailing lists will continue to remain open and you can choose which ever communication method you prefer.

CastorLive Book in the Works

Bruce Snyder is now authoring Castor Live for SourceBeat Publishing. The first cut of the book will be out by the end of the July containing the first few chapters.

The SourceBeat model is very different from traditional publishing because books are published online and updated every month by the author! Subscribers to a book receive a one year subscription and receive all updates to the title for that year. Also check out the Castor Live blog for additional information.
