status of JavaMail move to the Eclipse Foundation

Bill Shannon
 

I was hoping the move of the JavaMail project to the Eclipse Foundation
would be complete by now, but we ran into some legal issues with other
contributions that impacted JavaMail as well. We think we've resolved
those issues so I hope the move will be back on track soon.

Some of you may have noticed that the JavaMail project was "frozen"
while waiting for the move, and that bugs couldn't even be submitted.
I unfroze the project a few weeks ago while waiting for these legal
issues to be resolved. In the mean time several bugs have been reported
and I've fixed them for JavaMail 1.6.2.

Once I'm sure that everything is really on track for the move, I'll freeze
and release JavaMail 1.6.2. The project should appear at the Eclipse
Foundation very shortly afterwards. With luck this will happen sometime
in August.

The Eclipse project for JavaMail home page is here:
https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j.javamail

The repository will be here (but has not been created yet):
https://github.com/eclipse-ee4j/javamail

After the move, this mailing list will be deprecated and we'll switch to
the Eclipse mailing list:
https://accounts.eclipse.org/mailing-list/javamail-dev

If you haven't already done so, you might want to create an Eclipse account
and subscribe to the javamail-dev mailing list.

Thanks.

JavaMail 1.6.1 release and move to the Eclipse Foundation

Bill Shannon
 

As you're probably aware, Oracle is in the process of moving all of our
Java EE projects to the EE4J project [1] at the Eclipse Foundation.

We expect to submit a project proposal for the Eclipse Project for JavaMail
very soon. One of the first steps in moving the project to the Eclipse
Foundation is to bring the current project to a stable state and produce
a release.

I will be finalizing the JavaMail 1.6.1 release next week. Subsequent
releases will be made from the Eclipse Project for JavaMail.

I'll provide further updates as the move to EE4J progresses.

Bill Shannon
 

Welcome to the new home of JavaMail at GitHub and groups.io!

A second "release candidate" version of JavaMail 1.6.0 is now available.
There's a few bug fixes relative to the rc1 release related to the UTF-8

including the following significant changes:

- Use of Java generics in most APIs
- Support for internationalized email addresses (RFC 6530/6531/6532)

The ballot will finish on July 10. Assuming it passes, I expect to produce
the final JavaMail 1.6.0 release shortly thereafter.
