Cosmo 0.5 released

2006-11-03 08:23:00

I'm excited to announce that Cosmo 0.5 is out the door, including all the Web UI code merged in from the Scooby project.

The other biggie from the UI perspective is all the work we did on recurring events. This is some of the most interesting and challenging Web UI work I've ever had the pleasure to work on -- and given the complexity, kept surprisingly clean by some judicious use of of the publish-and-subscribe model provided by dojo.event.topic. Man, that is some seriously tasty Kool Aid.

Also in this release is the move to a Hibernate/relational-DB storage layer that will offer much better performance, and allow Cosmo to scale.

Cosmo comes with a bundled Tomcat server, so it's falling-off-a-log easy to install and play around with. Release notes, and info on how to download and install Cosmo can be found at the Cosmo project Web site.

If you need some help getting Cosmo running, or just want to let us know what you're doing with it, give us a shout in the #cosmo IRC channel on Freenode.
