Last night saw another Geomajas meeting, wherein community members came together in a face-to-face meeting regarding Geomajas roadmap. People that follow the mailing list might already know this, but we as an open source community try to meet as often as possible. Last night was an important meeting, as many topics regarding our codebase switch to GitHub were covered.
GitHub offers a lot of options, that we previously did not had. Also many agreements we have are based upon the use of Subversion. Those needed to be updated asap.
A new project has been added to the Geomajas stable: geomajas-project-profiling.
This is a project which can be used to continuously gather profiling information in a running application. It allows you to get the number of invocations and total/average time. Profiling data can also be grouped to allow total time to be split up over dthe different groups. There is JMX integration to access the data which is gathered and reset the counters.
lately it seems everyone has been so busy working on various plug-ins etc that our mailing list has been incredably active, while at the same time we haven't found the time to actually report our progress on the website...
Therefore, we would like to present a small update of what has been going on these last couple of months. Frankly, most of the work has gone into finishing the PureGWT face. This new client-side API will be a landmark in the Geomajas history (we've been working on it for 18 months now), and we're slowly getting to the finish.
The new features in are limited in these releases, but we have updated to GeoTools 2.7.5, fixed a long list of bugs and generally increased stability. Many smaller features have also been added as a result of feedback from the users.
Two new plug-ins have seen a 1.0.0-M1 milestone release.
These releases are done to increase visibilty of the work done but are not final releases. This means that the API may still change.
This feature info widgets plugin contains some more advanced functionality for viewing and formatting feature attribute information. For a description of the plugin, see http://geomajas.org/plugin/featureinfo.
