The end of year 2008 comes really close and here comes also this year's last release of SwingX. The SwingX-0.9.5 is available for download at SwingLabs download page or alternatively also from build server.
The other day I was looking for some software to create mind maps and friend suggested I look at XMind.
Just to give you a short peek under the hood of development going on for Magnolia 3.7, here come three different examples of writing paragraph templates for Magnolia. The example is actual textimage paragraph from the current samples.
Finally, after having to wait for few more weeks then originally planned, SwingX-0.9.4 is released. The main changes in this version were previously announced cleanup of the API, added switch to completely disable caps lock detection in
LoginPane and about 45 bug fixes.
Not so long ago I talked to Boris about Magnolia's new website and the problems with displaying blogs of developers using existing rss paragraph. While this paragraph allows displaying content of the feed on the fly there are several issues with the paragraph.
The stable release of Magnolia 3.6 will soon be out and it will ship with a brand new cache system implemented from scratch. The intention was not to reinvent the wheel, instead, the new cache system decouples Magnolia's presentation layer from the underlying cache mechanisms and allows to plug in any cache engine of choice.
0.9.3 release instead of concentrating on new features, delivers bug fixes for most pressing issues and should provide users with stable and usable code. This is ever more important as there will be some API changes made as a part of API cleanup planned for release 0.9.4.
I never wrote anything about Magnolia on this blog yet, so for those of you who never heard of it here comes a brief summary. If you know what Magnolia is about, feel free to skip to the next paragraph. Magnolia is a Content Management System (CMS).
Few months ago drive in my notebook stopped working and I lost some data which I was very sorry about. That's when I started to look into some backup solution. Then recently I found this little (physical size wise) disk - WD MyBook World Edition 2TB.
First, but hopefully not last version this year.
SwingX 0.9.2 is out. Download here.
This release brings in over 100 bug fixes. Along with the fixes comes also removal of all deprecated code. I know this is one of the unpopular things but had to be done sooner or later as we are getting closer to 1.0 release.
