August 2011 Report

Xerces-J

Our two GSoC students have been busy working on their projects over the summer and are making the final push to complete them this week.

The focus of the committers is still on improving the schema validator's conformance to the XML Schema 1.1 specification. Some good progress has been made in the last few weeks.

We recently learned that the current release of Xerces-J does not compile with Java SE 7. This issue with the build has been corrected in SVN.

Mailing list traffic has been moderate; about 230+ posts on the j-dev and j-users lists since the beginning of May.

No new releases this quarter.

Xerces-C

No major development activity during the reporting period, except for a few bug fixes.

Mailing list traffic has been moderate; about 90+ posts on the c-dev and c-users lists since the beginning of May.

No new releases this quarter.

Xerces-P

Nothing in particular to report. There was no development activity over the reporting period.

XML Commons

Recently the trunk of XML Commons External was upgraded to the StAX 1.2 APIs. This would be bundled with a future Xerces-J release.

No mailing list traffic to report other than JIRA issue updates.

The website and SVN location still need to be moved over from the XML project.

Apache Project Branding Requirements

There's still some work left to do on the TLP website, including adding TM to the project logo.
