Community changes

Georg Kallidis has been voted in as a Turbine Committer.

No new PMC members were voted in since the last board report.

Turbine core project

The Turbine core project proceeds slowly to the next milestone release which shall include a modified security implementation and support for the Quartz scheduler to replace the built-in one.

Due to unexpected problems with the release of a Fulcrum component (the previous method of mirroring the M2 repository on people.a.o does no longer work), we found the need to create a new Parent POM for the project that uses Nexus. As this is a substantial change in the organization of the Turbine core project and the Fulcrum components a full vote is being held.

Two other votes are open

  • Maven Archetype for a Turbine 2.3.3 web application
  • Maven Archetype for a Turbine 4.0 web application (based on Turbine 4.0M1)

Fulcrum component project

The Fulcrum security components are being prepared to be included in the Turbine 4.0M2 release. Several other Fulcrum components have been updated and will be released subsequently, once the new Parent POM is released.

  • fulcrum-upload, version 1.0.5 has been released.

META project

There has been no activity on the META sub-project in this quarter. The sub-project will be closed down when the two archetypes have passed their vote. We are planning not to report on this sub-project anymore starting from the next board report.

No beta or final releases were made since the last board report.
