5. Ask for vote


I was running the needed tasks to get the 1.1.8 release of Apache
MyFaces Tomahawk out.

Release notes can be found at [4].

Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.tomahawk" v2.0.9
 2. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.tomahawk" v1.1.8 [1]

The artifacts are deployed to my private Apache account ([1]).

There is also binary and source packages available on [2]

Please take a look at the "1.1.8" artifacts and vote!

Please note: This vote is "majority approval" with a minimum of three
+1 votes (see [3]).

[ ] +1 for community members who have reviewed the bits
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 for fatal flaws that should cause these bits not to be released,
 and why..............

10. ANNOUNCE mail

The Apache MyFaces team is pleased to announce the release of Apache MyFaces Tomahawk 1.1.8.

MyFaces Tomahawk provides a series of JavaServer Faces components that go beyond the JSF specification. These components are compatible with the Sun JSF 1.1 Reference Implementation (RI) or any other JSF 1.1 compatible implementation. Of course the custom components can also be used with the Apache JSF implementation "MyFaces Core 1.1.6".

There are also artifacts (tomahawk12) with enhanced compatibility with JSF 1.2

MyFaces Tomahawk 1.1.8 is available in both binary and source distributions.


MyFaces Tomahawk is also available in the central Maven repository under Group ID "org.apache.myfaces.tomahawk".
