forceTen 0.5.0 released

Posted by fabriziogiudici on November 9, 2009 at 7:41 PM PST

forceTen has gotten the first public release and it's now possible to download it both as a binary application and as a project to compile from sources (in addition to the cloning of the source repository). Also, I've set up the mailing lists, a user's forum and the issue tracker. I don't like the graphics of the new web site (it seems I'm suffering from a lack of fantasy for the clip art), but they are a reasonable starter.

As an application, forceTen has got only a handful of features, but I'm working on the trip management capabilities of blueMarine that will be part of forceTen - I think that there will be something interesting by Christmas.

I'm also finishing a few screencasts about how to develop for forceTen - they are relevant for blueMarine too, of course, and for people interested in developing with the NetBeans Platform. So, stay tuned.

Sorry for the late response,

Sorry for the late response, but I received only now the email notifying your comment.

The project compiles fine under Hudson, but I think there's still something wrong in the configuration of Maven caches (Nexus) so they "see" something that is not publicy available. They are some libraries from the OpenBlueSky project which is being mavenized as well. Can you retry with the latest forceTen update from the repository, please? I've done a few changes in the past days. Thanks.
