New JCP JSR Status: Inactive


The JCP has implemented the new "inactive" status label for JSRs. From the announcement:

... the new "inactive" status label for JSRs which we announced last month has just been applied to non-final JSRs that have not posted a milestone within the last 18 months.

The JCP pages have already been updated; check out the JSRs by Stage and the full list of Inactive JSRs. The list includes JSRs led by large and small companies, Sun and non-Sun. Some of the JSRs are very old, some just break the 18month boundary.

I think this is a very good move; some of the JSRs should just be closed, but some others are very important ones and I'd love to see them make progress - browse through the list and decide by yourself.
