Subject [Announce] Apache Abdera 0.3.0
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2007 18:49:53 GMT
The Apache Abdera community is pleased to announce the 0.3.0-incubating

You can download binary and source distributions from:

Builds are available for Java 1.5 and Java 1.4.2.

The goal of the Apache Abdera project is to build a
functionally-complete, high-performance implementation of the IETF Atom
Syndication Format (RFC 4287) and Atom Publishing Protocol (in-progress)

Abdera is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. Incubation is
required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates
that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process
have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF
projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the
completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project
has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
