  • The community has completed the post-graduation tasks.
  • Work continues to migrate content from Confluence to the new CMS website and to improve the design.
  • Several commits have been made to the VCL 2.3.1 bugfix branch to address minor problems with VCL 2.3, which was released in July. VCL 2.3.1 will be released this fall.
  • Traffic on the lists has been fairly high, mostly due to questions related to recently released VCL 2.3.
  • Development is still in the beginning stage for the VCL 2.4 features. Most development has been devoted to bug fixes.
  • One of the committers is working to develop code to provide a VCL block in Moodle. Some licensing concerns arose from this due to Moodle's GPL license. 1 Guidance was provided by legal-discuss. It was decided for this to be a separate non-ASF project independent of the Apache VCL.
