The Trinidad subproject now has a new skin (look-and feel). Since the skin was a large code contribution by someone who is not a committer, we checked on the "general AT incubator.apache.org" mailing list to determine if we needed a software grant for the skin. Since nothing indicated that we required a software grant (http://j.mp/cTpWak and http://j.mp/bX1TvY), we merged the donation to our code-base (see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TRINIDAD-1689).
A new subproject "CODI" has been created. The goal is to deliver jsf extensions for the JSR299, and we continue to closely work with the Apache OpenWebBeans community on this project.
- We have finally received an updated version of the TCK which takes into account our challenges and are rerunning the TCK.
- We are slowly following up on a security report. We feel it's acceptable to take a slower approach since the issue has been well-known for several years.
Google Summer of Code: The Apache MyFaces team has submitted the following ideas for which students can apply:
