The SVN branch for the upcoming 1.4.2 release has been created today. It already contains a few improvements and bugfixes (see CHANGELOG) and more will be added in the coming days so that we will have a release in the second week of July if everything goes well.

AIS Radar displays AIS (Automatic Identification System) data received from marine AIS transponders such as the ExNC 101 Class B AIS Transponder over a WiFi network. The application has been approved for the App Store yesterday and is now available. The complete processing backend of the application (threading, network connection, AIS data processing, tracking) has been built in C++, using POCO Foundation and Net, as well as small parts of Util for preferences management. I have also written two new libraries, Poco::Geo and Poco::Geo::AIS for dealing with geo positioning and AIS processing. The user interface part is of course written in Objective-C++, using the Cocoa Touch framework.

My best wishes to the people in Japan affected by the recent natural disaster. My thoughts are with you.
In the forum, we’re discussing the idea of collaboratively writing a POCO cookbook. Anyone willing to contribute ideas, text, sample code or proofreading time is invited to join the discussion in the forum.

In order to consolidate and focus our support resources there will be some changes to our mailing list policy. Experience over the past years has shown that more than 90 % of all support questions are already asked in the forum. In order to build up a central knowledge base and provide a single point of contact, we ask you all to post support questions and related topics to the forum only. While the poco-develop mailing list will continue to exist, it will from now on exclusively be used for coordination and internal discussion by the POCO development team. Support questions will no longer be answered on poco-develop.
Announcements regarding new releases and interesting topics, etc. will be made on Twitter and in this blog.
If you haven’t done so already, please go to the forum and create your account.
We also plan some improvements for the project website in the coming weeks, including a Job Board on the forum. If you have any suggestions or ideas for improvements, please post them to the Site Feedback forum.
