Top Aquarium posts for 2011

Of the 323 blog posts from 2011, here is the obligatory top 3 according to the blogs.oracle.com stats :

Java EE 7 review ballot results - Go! (March 15th)
Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) & GlassFish (June 24th)
GlassFish 3.1.1 has been released! Java 7 inside (July 28th)

With the blogging system migration in early May this year, the stats may be off by a little bit (isn't that the definition of stats?) so these results may be missing some of the posts from earlier in the year.

Hudson News - Oracle, New Blog, Twitter Feed, Windows Installer

Catching up on Hudson news in the last couple of weeks:

The most important change is that on Jan 27th, during the Strategy Presentations around the completion of Change in Control of the acquisition of Sun, Thomas Kurian indicated that Oracle was going to continue supporting Hudson as an Open Source project, to be integrated into Oracle's offerings (other CiC news in the Summary Post).

As part of the CiC, Kohsuke is now in the Developer Tools group, under Ted Farrell, which provides continuity for the current arrangement: although Kohsuke will no longer report to me, he will work full-time on Hudson with a large number of other committers into the project.

In other news:

ALT DESCR

• Kohsuke has made available a MSI Installer for Hudson on Windows (download).
Tyler has started the new official Hudson Blog.
• Follow Hudson News via Twitter at @hudsonci.
• We will continue to track key Hudson news at TA and @glassfish.
