Kosmos 0.2.0RC1, open source project monitoring portlet suite developed at JBoss Labs, has been released.
Its aim is to give you a quick and easy way to set up project dashboard portal pages.
Version highlights are:
JIRA monitoring service in two flavours: one implemented with the JIRA SOAP remote API, and one using web crawling techniques
CruiseControl monitoring service: downloads the build log directly from the CrusieControl-generated Build Result webpage, no need for logfiles in the local filesystem anymore
caching refactored: fully transparent EHcache-based AOP interceptor
zoomable charts: each chart image is generated in lo-resolution and hi-resolution versions to avoid confusing and busy charts
compatibility: Liferay Portal 3.6.1 and JBoss Portal 2.2 supported
i18n: Polish language pack (thanks to Adam)
improved documentation (thanks to Neal and his sister-in-law)
And of course a lot of minor fixes, enhancements and some major refactorings.
The next release will focus on providing download packages pre-configured for eXo Platform, Gridsphere, JBoss Portal and Liferay, that you can deploy simply by copying to the deployment directories.
(The previews of these packages are already available at the Kosmos downloads page.)
