* MINA 2 code has been cleaned up, but we don't feel like it worthful to
create a new release.

* The CMS web site is now fully operational, and we switched to svnpubsub
for all the releases. Everything is now on track.

few code drop in a branch.

A 0.3.0 release of SSHD was done.

From Vysper a new module for on stream XML decoding emerged. Will be a
basic brick for all the XML based network protocols (like XMPP).

We have some new activity on the AHC (Async Http Client) let's hope for
a release.

October Report
------------

General & Release
-----------------

The first MINA 2 RC is under vote and is going to be released in the
next days. Most of all the remaining bug was  squeezed.

September was very quiet, let's hope the new release generate more
activity, specially the probable start of a 3.0 experimental branch.

FtpServer released 1.0.3 a bug fix release.

SSHD made its second release the 0.2.0.

Vysper after a lot of activity during the summer is now suffering the
September syndrome.

Asyncweb is still asleep.

We broke the number of downloads per month last July  : around 40 000,
around 1300 a day.

15 Jul 2009 [Jason van Zyl / Roy]

* General & Release

Another MINA bug fix release was done (2.0.0-M6). The current goal is
to produce an RC release, trying to squeeze all the remaining issues,
while starting to produce a wish list for 3.0. Look like the MINA
developers are actually quite busy on other subjects, so it's not moving
very fast.

FtpServer released 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 two bug fix releases.

SSHD made its first release the 0.1.0 ! The project is still maturing
and the APIs are not to be considered stable.

Vysper is growing fast and discussions are conducted for moving it out
of the sandbox. A vote is about to be started.

* Community

Two new committers : Michael Jakl (focused on Vysper) and Shawn
Pearce (focused of SSHD) was voted in.

Benrd Fondermann and Guillaume Nodet was added to the PMC.

Prepared but not submitted. Postponed until next month.

15 Apr 2009 [Julien Vermillard / Henning]

General

MINA is slowly going from Milestone to RC cycle, with a emphasis on
documentation and website. We had lot of feedback and bug reports on the
last 2.0.0-M4 release, with some serious bug fixed, so releasing an
intermediate 2.0.0-M5 was voted. Normally the last one before the
2.0.0-RC1.

FtpServer is in the early stages of planning for the 1.1 work which
will include some new major features. In general, the project gets a
fair amount of user feedback so the community seems to be growing.

The new SSHD project is actively developed a first release is still to
be expected.

Release

FtpServer : release of FtpServer 1.0 after the RC cycle
A 2.0.0-M5 release for MINA is to be released in the next days, the main
effort is on the documentation, a RC1 is to expect soon as critical bugs
were fixed.

Community

Sai Pullabhotla was voted as new committer, mainly focused on FtpServer.
After few month of cool down, the activity is coming back in commit and
mailing list activity.

Vysper a XMPP (Jabber) server based on MINA, which is currently
developed at Apache labs is willing to join MINA as a subproject (as
FtpServer and Asyncweb). This idea received a warm welcome of the
MINA community.

21 Jan 2009

 appointed.

 Special Order 7A, appoint Julien Vermillard as Apache MINA chairman,
 was approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

21 Jan 2009 [Peter Royal / Bill]

It has been a good quarter for MINA. The project is continuing to see
activity and progress. Acivity on the mailing lists is continuing to come
from an increasingly diverse crowd.

We have added three new committers, Ashish Paliwal, David Latorre and
Guillaume Nodet. The long road towards MINA 2.0 is coming to a close with a
2.0M4 release which signaled a code-freeze towards 2.0-final

Our FTPServer sub-project just released their first 1.0 release candidate.

We also added a new sub-project that aims to produce a SSHd implementation.

Finally, I am stepping down as PMC chair. The PMC has voted to recommend
Julien Vermillard as my successor.

15 Oct 2008 [Peter Royal / Geir]

MINA-land has been mostly-calm.

We have added one new committer, Edouard De Oliveira.

We re-organized our website some for usability's sake.

Release-wise, we have put out two milestone releases towards MINA 2.0, M2
and M3. We hope to release a M4 by the end of the year. Development has
been progressing more slowly (as expected) since Trustin's departure.

On our FtpServer subproject, from Niklas Gustavsson:

 "In FtpServer land we've done two releases since the last report,
 1.0-M2 and 1.0-M3. And we're well on the way to 1.0-M4 which is
 expected to be the last milestone before the end game to 1.0.
 Development has been ongoing and community involvement is greatly
 improving, however we still need more active commiters on the code."

16 Jul 2008

This has been a tumultuous quarter for MINA. One of our longtime developers
and project co-founders, Trustin Lee, has decided to leave the project. He
will be sorely missed.

Trustin was a prolific contributor, and it remains to be seen how the
project will adapt to his departure.

Other contributors have been stepping up, which is a healthy sign. It has
been a wakeup-call of sorts to the community to realize how much we were
depending upon a single individual, and this may be the painful lesson
that ultimately leads to greater diversity.

We have continued to provide updated versions of our released software
MINA 1.0.10 and 1.1.7. Development continues towards a 2.0 release, with a
second milestone release just last week. The focus has been on helping
others understand the codebase, and to those ends, we have been working
on documntation and clarifying refactorings. Our FtpServer sub-project has
also been under active development, but no releases.

PMC / Committer changes:

 * Trustin Lee resigned from the PMC
 * Peter Royal succeeds Trustin as PMC chair
 * Edouard De Oliveira and Rich Dougherty added as committers
 * Mark Webb and Maarten Bosteels joined the PMC

 Special Order 7B, Change the Apache MINA Project Chair, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

16 Apr 2008 [Trustin Lee / Bill]

Releases
========
We released two backward-compatible minor bug fix releases - MINA 1.0.9
and 1.1.6. Most importantly, MINA 2.0.0-M1 has been release after long
long development.

Community
=========
We have set up two subprojects; FtpServer and AsyncWeb. The dedicated
mailing list for FtpServer users has been created. AsyncWeb currently
has two implementations for the client side HTTP. One is from Geronimo
contributors and the other is from MINA contributors. Both contributors
have agreed to merge the two implementations into one. As a result of
the effort to accelerate the merger, Sangjin Lee and Rick McGuire joined
the MINA team.

MINA project itself also has set up the dedicated mailing list for MINA
users due to increasing number of questions and answers in the developer
list.

On the other hand, we are seeing a few important incoming contribution
such as Scala binding (Rich Dougherty) and proxy support (James Furness
and Edouard De Oliveira). They are good candidates as MINA team members
and we are going to keep our eyes on them and their contribution.

Noteworthy Features
===================
We have moved immature traffic shaping/throttling feature from the trunk
to the sandbox not to deliver broken implementation. It shouldn't hurt
MINA itself because traffic shaping/throttling can be always done in
most modern operating systems (aka QoS support.)

Issues
======
Both AsyncWeb and FtpServer need to integrate their web site into its
parent site. It's purely a matter of time and effort, so I believe it
will be resolved this quarter.

Except that, I don't see any issue that requires the board's attention.

16 Jan 2008 [Trustin Lee / Justin]

Releases
========
We cut four minor releases: 1.0.7, 1.0.8, 1.1.4 and 1.1.5.  The new
releases contain backward-compatible minor improvements and bug fixes.

Community
=========
FtpServer project has been graduated from the Incubator into the MINA
project.  It is in progress to merge the two web sites into one
seamlessly, and other infrastructure-related changes are being
discussed.  Niklas Gustavsson joined the MINA PMC as the lead of the
FtpServer project.

Jeff Genender, a member of the foundation and a MINA enthusiast,
joined the MINA PMC.  His primary focus is to implement high
performance asynchronous HTTP client implementation, along with HTTP
server implementation.  These client-server implementations are not a
stand-alone application but a library on top of the MINA framework, so
it will be the best fit together.

There was a serious discussion about changing logging framework of
MINA 2 in the mailing list, and we concluded to stick to the current
logging framework (i.e. SLF4J).  Instead, Trustin Lee will provide a
tool that converts a JAR which depends on a logging framework A into a
new JAR which depends on a logging framework B.  Maarten Bosteels is
also working with SLF4J team to make it more friendly with more
logging frameworks such as java.util.logging, which will simplify MINA
logging significantly.  The bottom line is that we will be able to
resolve every community member's concern with MINA 2 hopefully.

The community itself seems to be growing up and up steadily.  Please
refer to the markmail.org traffic graph: http://mina.markmail.org/  We
are seeing decreased traffic on December 2007, but it's probably due
to holidays.

Features
========
Julien Vermillard and Trustin Lee finished implementation of APR
transport.  This means MINA now can utilize ASF's high performance
cross platform library for network operations.  It seems to perform
10% better than the Sun epoll NIO provider.  Switching from NIO to APR
takes just a few minutes.

JMX integration has been rewritten, which means all MINA-based
applications are manageable via JMX very easily.

Synchronous reader API has been implemented.  MINA is basically an
asynchronous framework so some client developers will benefit from
this new feature.

The OSGi integration issue reported in the last report has been resolved.

Issues
======
We need to finish migration of FtpServer and release MINA 2.0.0-M1
this quarter to catch up the users' demand.  We might need more
committers who has good will for keeping MINA project run.

Approved by General Consent.

17 Oct 2007 [Trustin Lee / Will]

Releases
========
We cut six new minor releases: 1.0.4, 1.0.5, 1.0.6, 1.1.1, 1.1.2 and
1.1.3.  The new releases contain backward-compatible minor
improvements and several bug fixes.  We didn't announce the news for
1.0.6 and 1.1.3, but it's on the way.

Community
=========
Mike Heath, long time MINA committer, has shown his continuing
contribution to the project, and has been promoted to be a PMC member.

Maarten Bosteels, another long time community member and document
contributor, has been added to our committer list.

Niclas Hedman, the mentor of the FTPServer project in the Incubator,
asked about the possibility of hosting the FTPServer project under
MINA project.  All PMC members expressed positive opinion, so we are
going to start a vote for adopting the FTPServer project.

As the MINA core itself becomes more and more mature, people started
to ask about out-of-the-box protocol codecs for well-known protocols
such as HTTP, FTP, SMTP and ISO 8583 which will potentially boost up
server development in an order of magnitude.  We agreed that AsyncWeb
(received software grant), FTPServer (under incubation) and ISO 8583
(need to contact the existing community) are going to be a great
addition to the project.  Jeff Genender, the Geronimo committer and
member, also donated HTTP client module for MINA.  Of course, all
these additions should occur in the manageable extent, and we believe
we can.

Due to the massive class renaming and refactoring, we are getting many
questions about disappeared classes recently.  It means much more
people than we expected are using the development branch, and it can
possibly lead to complaints of the users.  Releasing 2.0.0-M1, the
first milestone of the next generation of MINA, as soon as possible
will remedy situation.

Due to the high flexibility and generic API, users often find
themselves difficulty in choosing the right way to implement a
protocol codec.  We need to improve documentation on this area to
reduce the ratio of the questions in the mailing list.

Our web site has been revamped to attractive more people.  We also
added a link to Nabble.com mailing list archive for those who are not
used to the mailing list.

Features
========
Julien Vermillard, our most active committer and PMC member, added
preliminary support for APR transport.  This means MINA now can
utilize ASF's high-performance and cross-platform library for network
operations.  All the existing MINA applications will benefit from this
thanks to the highly abstract nature of MINA API.

Trustin Lee refactored the trunk massively to make implementing a new
transport very easily.  Julien's APR transport will be the first
customer of this change.  Thanks to this change, a lot of code
duplication has been removed.

Maarten Bosteels added MDC injection filter that helps to create more
understandable communication logs.

A brand new asynchronous HTTP client was contributed by Jeff Genender
and integrated into MINA codebase by Mark Webb

Issues
======
As OSGi framework becomes a buzzword in the market, people keeps
asking about providing OSGi bundles for MINA artifacts.  We've been
relying on the Maven 2 plugin provided by the Felix project, but we
dropped the support because it doesn't work pretty well with
multi-project layout.  We temporarily concluded to wait for the
plugin to fix the bug.

Logging framework, again, arose as an issue.  Users seem to have
difficulties configuring SLF4J, so we added a dedicated page for
configuring SLF4J for MINA in our documentation section.

Most PMC members agreed on moving Niklas's state machine module to the
trunk.  Strictly speaking, it doesn't depend on MINA core, but it is
very clear that it is designed to work very well with MINA and
protocol implementation.

Releases
========
We didn't release a new version yet while we are fixing reported bugs
as soon as possible.  Hopefully the new releases will be introduced at
the end of July.

Community
=========
Mark Webb, enthusiastic document contributor, has been added to our
committer list.  He also showed his will to learn the MINA internals
by writing documents and start to contribute the code eventually.  So
far, he's doing very well.  We are also discussing about adding
Maarten Bosteels.  He has been an active answerer for many questions
and a patch provider.  The vote will start soon.

People keep asking about the release schedule of the version 2.0, but
we are not able to give any specific date because the project is fully
volunteer-based.  We are currently focusing on fixing issues in 1.x
versions.

Community contributors are keep posting patches such as blocking I/O
support and FTP implementation example.  Once reviewed, they will be
selectively included to the mainstream.  The patches for bugs are
applied as soon as possible.

To address very frequent questions about the performance of MINA, a
web page dedicated to performance test reports has been created.  As
its first content, Trustin Lee added performance test report for HTTP
server implementation, which shows an impressive result.

There was a serious discussion about starting a new DNS library
project.  The authors of dnsjava and dnsjnio project showed interest.
Currently the discussion is somewhat stalled because we are not sure
if MINA has to host the project, because the Incubator or Labs is the
more suitable place.

Features
========
Julien Vermillard added serial port communication to MINA.  This means
any MINA application can communicate via a serial port with minimal
(or no) code modification.  He also started to work on APR transport
for MINA, which might yield better performance to existing MINA-based
applications with minimal (or no) code modification.

Trustin Lee added an extension that eases the development of
request-response style client application.

Mark Webb added an extension that throttles the number of connection
attempts within a certain amount time.

Issues
======
Niklas Therning wrote a nice state machine library called 'MINA-SM'.
Strictly speaking, it doesn't depend on MINA although it is designed
to work very well with MINA and protocol implementation.  We didn't
discuss about where this project should be hosted yet.

Apache MINA is a Java network application framework, which enables
rapid development of high-performance and high-quality network
applications.

Releases
========
There was no release this month, but vote for two new releases (1.0.3
and 1.1.0) are in progress.  Apache MINA 1.0.3 is a bug fix release
and 1.1.0 is a Java 5 port of 1.0.x.

Community News
==============
7 more bugs has been reported and fixed since 1.0.2.  We are still
getting a a lot of questions especially about implementation of
protocol codecs and performance tuning.  I wrote the table of contents
for the documentation  to promote community contribution from users,
and documentation contributors such as Mark Webb seem to be interested
in helping fill the unwritten part.  However, it's progressing very
slowly, and we expect we will receive as many question as before
meanwhile.

MINA's datagram (UDP/IP) implementation didn't get much attention than
socket (TCP/IP) implementation so far, but Greg Duffy, our community
member, is showing his interest in revamping the datagram
implementation for higher performance like the socket implementation
fulfilled.  It is great to have people who uses various transport
types in the community, and it will lead us to more solid product.

Issues
======
There's no critical community issue this month.

development of high-performance and high-quality network applications.

TLP Promotion
===========
I can't think of any more things to do for TLP promotion.  Please let us
know if there's something needs to be done.  Once considered finished, we
will remove this section in the board report from next time.

Releases
=======
1.0.2 has been released with 14 bug fixes and 3 improvements.  We are
currently releasing bi-monthly for now, though we haven't intended to do
so.  It seems like there's a natural rhythm in this project. :)

Community News
============
As of release of version 1.0.2, the rate of bug report has been dropped
down significantly.  We are focusing on answering questions in the mailing
list and writing mini-tutorials, which will be merged into one thorough
guide book someday.

Issues
=====
There are two source code contribution in progress.  The one is
AsyncWeb (http://asyncweb.safehaus.org/ ), a HTTP implementation based on
MINA.  The other is a few classes that supports heart-beat mechanism for
MINA.  The owners of the source code, LogicaCMG and Indagon Ltd
respectively, have signed software grants and faxed them.

We see no problem importing these two contributions because the main
authors of AsyncWeb are already members of MINA PMC, and the heart-beat
implementation is small enough (just 4 classes) for us to maintain.
They are going to be imported into the SVN repository once the software
grants are confirmed.

Alex Karasulu and Robert Burrell Donkin helped us to understand the
overall process about accepting code contribution.  We couldn't make
all this happen without their help!

Apache MINA is a Java network application framework, which enables rapid
development of high-performance and high-quality network applications.

TLP Promotion
=============
All infra changes required for TLP promotion has been finished thanks to
Henri Yandell's help. One last thing is to add a link to mina.apache.org
in www.apache.org, but we didn't add the link by our will because we feel
that we need to finish our work on documentation before getting listed
there. We have great community, but we don't want the community
overloaded by overwhelming traffic due to bad documentation.

Releases
========
There was no releases in this period. We are very close to 1.0.2 though.
11 issues have been fixed.

Community News
==============
Julien Vermillard is adding serial and parallel port communication feature
to MINA using RXTX library ( http://www.rxtx.org/). It's progrssing
slowly, but once done, we will be able to support more transports which is
based on blocking I/O.

Mike Heath is working on asynchronous I/O API with JNI. It's working with
file for now, but the goal of this subproject is to provide AIO API and
its implementation and to plug it into MINA.

Issues
======
Mike Heath has announced a release of AIOJ snapshot without firing any
vote. PMC has noticed it quickly and corrected his announcement. He said
it was not his intention to announce something officially and it was just
a mistake. We agreed that it's a mistake and decided to find better road
map to release AIOJ, which is immature yet.

Apache MINA is a Java network application framework, which enables
rapid development of high-performance and high-quality network
applications.

TLP Promotion
=============
The required infra changes for MINA TLP promotion has been finished,
except for JIRA.  We requested the infra team to change our project ID
from DIRMINA to MINA and to create appropriate groups in JIRA, but
it's not finished yet.  It's OK for now, but we will at least need our
own JIRA groups for better permission management.  Please let me know
if any further assistance is needed, so I can help the infra team.

The whole MINA web site has been migrated to cwiki.apache.org.
mina.apache.org  contains only a small .htaccess file that proxies the
requests to htp://cwiki.apache.org/MINA/ selectively.  The build
script generates only report pages such as JavaDoc and Xref.

Releases
========
MINA 1.0.1 has been released on December 6, 2006, with 15 issues
including 13 bugs fixed.

Community News
==============
Wildfire, Jive Software's commercial XMPP (Jabber protocol) server has
replaced their in-house networking layer with MINA, and got an
impressive scalability boost, 33,000 concurrent users.

We've found that people who didn't fax his or her CLA are having
difficulties sharing his or her performance test results easily.  They
usually share their reports using the mailing list, but centralized
efforts are inevitable to transform their text messages into fancy
charts and explanation with more flesh.

Issues
======
We are facing more requests on documentation.  Two community members,
Cameron Taggart and Jeroen Brattinga, sent their CLAs to get write
access to the cwiki space.  There's no big activity so far, but we
expect more activity once we start to upload more tutorials and
guides.

Alex Karasulu has been trying to clear IP issues with AsyncWeb, an
asynchronous HTTP implementation built on top of MINA.  It took
moderate amount of time due to the lawyers' lack of understanding on
the ASF, but they finally have agreed on signing the software grant.
We expect embracing AsyncWeb project under Apache MINA due to their
strong relationship and dependency once the IP clarification process
is finished.

Henri was confused regarding the need for an iCLA in order for someone to publish performance results. The answer was that these results are published on the Project Wiki and in order to have write access on it, an iCLA is needed.
