Posted by rah003 on June 26, 2008 at 9:19 AM PDT

The stable release of Magnolia 3.6 will soon be out and it will ship with a brand new cache system implemented from scratch.

Posted by rah003 on March 2, 2008 at 12:32 PM PST

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.
