Subject [VOTE] Release jena-2.7.0-incubating (RC1)
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2011 09:16:48 GMT
Please vote on releasing the following as
   Apache Jena version 2.7.0-incubating

This will be the first incubator release for Jena at Apache.

== Overview

Jena is a Java framework for building Semantic Web applications. Jena 
provides a collection of tools and Java libraries to help to develop 
semantic web and linked-data apps, tools and servers.

Jena is composed of a number of modules.  Historically, they have been 
released semi-independently, sort of "flying in formation". We intend to 
switch to a more integrated build process and we want to create the time 
to do that by making this first Apache release now.

For this first release, we need to release several modules at once as 
none have been released at Apache before.  Our apologies for the extra 
checking work this results in.  It also makes building everything from 
scratch involve more steps than an integrated build would do.

Jena is delivered as maven artifacts for the jar for each module.  It is 
also delivered as zip file containing all the jars and their 
dependencies so users have a "download and unpack" option.

The version number of the release aligns with the main artifact and the 
packaged download.  Different modules have different version numbers.

Detailed version numbers:

jena-top      0-incubating        Parent POM
jena-iri      0.9.0-incubating    IRI parsing library
jena-core     2.7.0-incubating    Main Jena APIs for RDF and OWL.
jena-arq      2.9.0-incubating    SPARQL query engine.
apache-jena   2.7.0-incubating    Download, with all dependencies.
