A couple of weeks ago, I started to create a wrapper around the C++ activemq (http://activemq.apache.org/cms) library, which allows to connect to the activemq message oriented middleware.
I had a couple of problems while interfacing between Eiffel and C++, where Manu helped me a lot (big thanks again). But got it working well in the end.
While updating a checkout of the EiffelStudio release I saw, that the 70'000 commit has happened a couple of days ago by Paul.
So congratulations to EiffelStudio, there aren't that many repositories with that many commits around.
I just created poll on how people like to communicate.
Recently there was a discussion about which Eiffel mailing list to use. I'm wondering if people like mailing lists or would prefer something different altogether.
I personally prefer online forums to mailing lists as they have several advantages.
Yesterday the first alpha version of origo has been launched.
Origo is a platform for distributed development and user interaction. It is built on a middleware architecture that uses JXTA and is written in Eiffel. This middleware provides an xmlrpc api which is used by a website to access and update data.
