Just a heads up to let everyone know that the team is going to be taking time off here and there from now through the new year and some of us will have limited internet access. In any case, some of us will be checking the forums every now and then but our responsiveness may be somewhat slow until the new year has begun.
Big Plans for New Year
While we have accomplished some amazing things in 2006, we have even bigger plans for 2007 and we are hopeful that our community will continue to accelerate in it’s growth and that ThinWire can become the standard for developing Ajax RIA applications, especially in Java. To make that happen, I’d like to take a minute to remind everyone that this is truly an open-source and community driven project.
Unlike some of the other commercial entities that have released there code under an open source license as a gimmick to attract developers and press, all in the hopes of getting revenue through indirect means. I personally have been driving the framework to an increasingly open-source, community oriented existence… not because I think we’re all going to get rich from this, but because I know we have made something great with this framework and I felt obligated to share what we had done with others who could use it. You see, I use many open source tools and products myself and I thought it was time to give something back to the community.
