May 2013 Report
It's been relatively quiet on the development front. A few bugs were fixed and some JIRA issues were resolved.
There were a few students who expressed an interest in working on Xerces-J for GSoC though none of them created a formal proposal.
Mailing list traffic has been moderate; about 125+ posts on the j-dev and j-users lists since the beginning of February 2013.
No new releases this quarter. The latest release is Xerces-J 2.11.0 (November 30th, 2010).
Several users have asked for the release of version 3.2.0, in order to include the latest fixes (including the support for Visual Studio 2012). A proposal has been made to include support for the XML 1.0 5th edition in the 3.2.0 release. A few users have volunteered to do testing on various platforms. We are hopeful that the new version will be ready in the coming weeks.

There's still some work left to do on the TLP website, including adding "TM" to the project logo.
After reaching consensus with the community an admin group was set up for the Xerces Wiki to put an end to the SPAM that was frequently being posted to it.
