Apache Cocoon 2.0 Released
The Apache Cocoon development community is very proud to announce the long-awaited first stable release of the next generation of Apache Cocoon.
Apache Cocoon is an XML framework that raises the usage of XML and XSLT technologies for server applications to a new level. Designed for performance and scalability around pipelined SAX processing, Cocoon offers a flexible environment based on the separation of concerns between content, logic and style. A centralized configuration system and sophisticated caching top this all off and help you to create, deploy and maintain rock-solid XML server applications.
Today, most web engineers consider XML as the key for an improved web model and web site managers see XML as a way to reduce costs and ease production. In an era where services rather than software will be key for economic success, a better and less expensive model for web publishing will be a winner, especially one based on open standards.
This release of Cocoon is a complete rewrite of the first generation that removes all of those design constraints that emerged during almost three years of worldwide use.
This release is considered stable in both implementation and on the API it provides: this means that the Apache Cocoon development community is now fully committed to preserve backwards compatibility with this release.
We value the time and energy that our users will spend in order to deploy Cocoon technologies in their solutions and will make all possible effort to keep Cocoon a solid platform to work on.
