... Reglib or JQuery, IPS and UpdateCenter, and Wikipedia and MySQL

Some recent news of interest:

JQuery is a small and fast JavaScript Framework (Wikipedia, homepage). JQuery is very popular (Google Trends!), but Greg (Reimer - one of the developers of Sun.Com) was interested in exploring a declarative approach to JavaScript programming and created reglib (for registration library). JavaScript fiends can start at Reg's reglib vs JQuery post, and then browse though his Other posts, and then go Download the code.

The pack(5) (i.e. IPS) toolkit continues to make progress. Although it came from the OpenSolaris effort it is really platform independent and IPS is at the core of the new Update Center for GlassFish v3. Check the IPS blog and the IPS Best Practices Wiki. A recent good presentation is outlined in Intro to pkg(5) - I'd like to schedule one for TheAquarium Online series.

Finally a story that is a couple of weeks old; Wikipedia is going to use Sun's OpenStorage products to run MySQL (see Jonathan's entry). Hopefully we will see many more to come in the future as we continue to Optimize the Performance of MySQL on Sun's Systems.
