GSoC and Monkey Roadmap
we are almost finishing the Google Summer of Code program and the students have done a great job on Monkey Project, i have to admit that i am quite impressed by the quality of the work delivered. It has been a good experience for both sides, in name of the community i can only say “good job!”. I will share more details and a final evaluation once the program ends officially, as well you will see a mini-post in the Google Code blog early in September.
The latest release version of Monkey is v1.0.1, in our development repository we have created a the branch for v1.1.0, this last one is in code-freeze status, that means that we are preparing the release and the a few tasks are involved such as: minor bug fixing, test the code base, verify possible regressions, do cleanups, package the binaries for Debian/Ubuntu, write the release notes, etc. So we hope to have some news at the end of this week, more detail will be shared in the release notes.
In GIT Master, we keep the good work for Monkey v1.2 and we are planning the release for mid of October 2012, the most relevant features listed at the moment is the inclusion of the FastCGI plugin and the replacement of SSL layer provided by MatrixSSL in favor of the SSL layer provided by PolarSSL.
Our web services framework is still under active development, we are still working in some improvements before to deliver an official release, if you are interested on how is going you can check the development repository, or as well check the current API documentation.
For any of the project listed, If you have a desired feature/extension, please let us know, we are focusing on delivering a high quality open source web server stack based on people needs
