The Apache JMeter desktop application is a Java application designed to load
test functional behavior and measure performance.

The Apache JMeter TLP was created on Oct 26 2011; previously JMeter
was a Jakarta subproject.

All JMeter resources - website, SVN, mailinglists, release
distribution - have now been moved from the Jakarta umbrella to its
own TLP, with the exception of archived versions, which still reside
under the jakarta/jmeter directory tree.

The user mailing list was renamed (so kept its subscribers) and
remains fairly busy.

There don't seem to have been any user issues with the change to TLP status.

Work continues on fixing bugs and implementing new features.

Branding checklist:
- Project Website Basics - done
- Website Navigation Links - done
- Trademark Attributions - done
- Logos and Graphics - done
- Project Metadata (DOAP) - done
It is believed that all the branding requirements have been completed.
