Continuity is King

towerUnfortunately there has been so much going on in my work life and my private life lately that I didn’t get around thinking and writing much.

Here is just a short note that v2.4 of z2 is ready: v2.4

It simply upgrades z2 to Java 8 and upgrades the version of Jetty we use to 9.3. The latter implies that Java 8 is a strict requirement too.

Little change is good as those projects that run with z2 need anything but platform disruption at this time.

As the core did not change incompatibly (at least not that I know), using a v2.4 core with previous z2-base version 2.3 will simply add Java 8 support to any such setup as well.

Anyway here’s what I hope to continue on once I am back to normal operations again:

  • A piece on how to use clojure on z2 with a guest author from Vienna
  • A piece on a variation of the Stockholm Syndrome that can be observed in the relationship of developers with their toolset
  • A piece on how organization can be classified as Project vs. Product driven
