The Numbers

Filed under: Uncategorized by guenter at 20:51

For the 1.4.5 release, I’ve for the first time put the downloads on GitHub in addition to SourceForge. Since it took a very long time for the downloads to become available on SourceForge (and my frustration with SourceForge has been growing lately, especially after the upgrade disaster), the download page links to the files on GitHub. This lead to an interesting observation. While SourceForge download statistics show around 5.900 total downloads per month for October (which was a new all-time high), as of today GitHub shows a total of 8757 downloads for 1.4.5 after only a week. So where do these contradicting numbers come from? Ideas anyone?

New Applied Informatics C++ Libraries and Tools Release 2012.1

Filed under: News by guenter at 11:53

The C++ Libraries and Tools from Applied Informatics are based on the POCO C++ Libraries and add additional features such as Remoting for RPC/IPC and SOAP/WSDL web services, Open Service Platform for building modular, extensible applications, DNSSD/Zeroconf, Universal Plug and Play, Fast Infoset processing or secure remote access to smart devices. New in release 2012.1 is support for C++ code generation from XML Schema and WSDL documents, allowing Remoting to invoke SOAP 1.1/1.2 web services created using other middleware technologies such as Java JAX-WS or Microsoft .NET WCF. In addition to SOAP 1.1 and 1.2, the new Remoting also supports MTOM, HTTP Basic and Digest authentication and HTTP compression (gzip content encoding), as well as remote events with the new TCP transport.
A free evaluation version is available for download.

Fork it!

We’ve been asked and nudged for a long time to make the move; like¬†everything else, it was something that requires resources of time and effort so it did not happen as fast as it should have. But finally, we’ve made it over to GitHub and now we can enjoy the benefits. Branching and merging is simple and intuitive, forking is readily available; we already have 632* “forkers” and 27100* “stargazers“.

I like the code-centered paradigm of GitHub – everything (as it should) revolves around and is linked with code.¬†My favorite feature is the “network graph” (depicted below) showing who forked and what changes were synced. We have a proto-wiki with roadmap and supported platforms.

So, if you have not done it yet, what the fork are you waiting for?  Stop by, hang around and Рfork it!
