Tynamo is a model-driven, full-stack web framework based on Tapestry 5.
Tynamo's mission is to make web application development in Java simpler. We leverage existing technologies where possible and provide integrations with proven, clean and compact libraries rather than limit ourselves only to standard Java (JSR). Tynamo is both full-stack and modular so you are free to choose to parts you like from the stack. And finally, we like Tapestry and our modules use Tapestry IoC extensively.
As hinted earlier, our first T5.4 compatible module, tapestry-security is released. This release is primarily for compatibility, although I threw in one, non-backwards compatible enhancements for optimized rememberMe cookies because I felt it was the right time. The source has moved to Github and the userguide is still at the familiar location at http://tynamo.org/tapestry-security+guide. I've only recently started working more on T5.4 codebase myself so keep the enhancements (and pull requests!) coming as you see need. Open issues against the Github repo please.
Release Notes - tapestry-security-0.6.0
* [TYNAMO-147] - Make tapestry-security compatible with tapestry-5.4
* [TYNAMO-236] - Migrate tapestry-security to tapestry 5.4 beta
GitHub is cool and we so desperately want to be cool too that we decided Tynamo needs to be there as well. In all seriousness, Dragan Sahpaski wrote up a whizbang script to import all of the Tynamo's SVN history, branches etc. to a Git repo so it made the move a no-brainer. Thanks Dragan. We still love Codehaus though and they'll continue providing a lot of the infrastructure support, like CI builds and Confluence space but we are going to moving issue management over to Github as well so we can be ready for your pull requests instead of writing the code ourselves :) Also because we are good Git citizens, each Tynamo module now has its own Git repo. Checkout the Github organization page at https://github.com/tynamo and navigate from there to your preferred module and start forking away!
Now that a public beta of Tapestry 5.4 is out, we are also starting a module upgrade and release cycle for 5.4 compatibility. Tapestry-security 0.6.0 is first in line, watch for the release announcement later!
Project Lambda was merged to the mainline a while back but b106 is the official developer preview release and (depending on how you look at things) it was actually released on schedule. My main interest beyond lamba expessions is how the JRE performs with the new metaspace. Naturally Mark has a few forewords to say about the new JDK8 build, go get yours!
