Want to understand source code? {OpenGrok 0.9 RC1 out now !

OPENGROK 0.9 RC1(release candidate 1) RELEASE NOTES

OpenGrok is a fast and usable source code search and cross reference engine. It helps you search, cross-reference and navigate your source tree. It can understand various program file formats (c, c++, c#, java, sh, ...) and version control histories like (Mercurial, Git, SCCS, RCS, CVS, Subversion, Teamware, ClearCase, Perforce, Monotone and Bazaar.) In other words it lets you grok (profoundly understand) the open source, hence the name OpenGrok. It is written in Java.

To download RC1 binaries, please go to: http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Project+opengrok/files#HBinarysourcereleases and look for 0.9-rc1 binary, source or a package file.

This is a major update. It's advised you cleanup your old DATA_ROOT(ideally remove it, or move it aside) and run indexing from fresh. Also the web application should be replaced, since new indexes are not compatible with old application. This is also a general rule for most of opengrok updates. We don't really support backwards compatibility, unless it would be a really minor update.
For install help refer to install wiki page.

Since this is a release candidate and not the final release(yet), please refer to issues page on where to file bugs and discussions page on where to report a problem or get help.

We'd like to thank all the people that report bugs, send us ideas and improvements. Below are just people that sent patches or pushed code, that doesn't mean that we don't appreciate your work. On the contrary, you are the people showing other people(who have the time to write code) what would be good to fix when you use this software and file bugs against it! Note that this is just a summary of how many changes each person made which doesn't necessarily reflect how significant each change was. (inspect the history log with "hg log -v -r 0.8.1:tip" to get all details)

Cool stuff. I am going to slap it on our master indexer early next week to see if there are any issues which need to be addressed before the release.
