The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Spark™ v1.0
Apache Spark has been dubbed a "Hadoop Swiss Army knife" for its remarkable speed and ease of use, allowing developers to quickly write applications in Java, Scala, or Python, using its built-in set of over 80 high-level operators. With Spark, programs can run up to 100x faster than Apache Hadoop MapReduce in memory.
"1.0 is a huge milestone for the fast-growing Spark community. Every contributor and user who's helped bring Spark to this point should feel proud of this release," said Matei Zaharia, Vice President of Apache Spark.
New in v1.0, Apache Spark offers strong API stability guarantees (backward-compatibility throughout the 1.X series), a new Spark SQL component for accessing structured data, as well as richer integration with other Apache projects (Hadoop YARN, Hive, and Mesos).
Spark was originally developed at UC Berkeley AMP Lab, and its ease of use has made it a go-to solution for both small and large enterprise environments across a wide range of industries, including Alibaba, ClearStory Data, Cloudera, Databricks, IBM, Intel, MapR, Ooyala, and Yahoo, among others. Not only are organizations rapidly adopting and deploying Apache Spark, many contributors are committing code to the project as well.
"At NASA, we're really excited to leverage Spark and its highly interactive analytic capabilities and the speedups offered by 1.0 along with Spark SQL are going to help out critical projects looking at measurement of Snow in the Western US and also on projects related to Regional Climate Modeling and in Model Evaluation for the U.S. National Climate Assessment related Activities," said Chris Mattmann, an ASF Director, Chief Architect, Instrument and Science Data Systems Section at NASA JPL, and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Southern California. "I'm looking forward to designing Spark-related projects in my Software Architectures and in my Search Engines courses at USC as well. The community is one of our most active at the ASF and the interest has really peaked and these guys are doing a great job."

The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache ACE as a Top-Level Project
Open Source OSGi software distribution framework especially suited for the Cloud and embedded computing markets
Forest Hill, MD – 27 February 2012 – The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of nearly 150 Open Source projects and initiatives, today announced that Apache ACE has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project (TLP), signifying that the Project's community and products have been well-governed under the ASF's meritocratic process and principles.
Apache ACE is a software distribution framework for managing and distributing modular software components, configuration data, and other artifacts to OSGi-based and related target systems.
Comprising a set of OSGi bundles, Apache ACE allows developers to easily manage the dependencies, deployment, and feedback of installed software components. This proves particularly useful when scaling across embedded and Cloud computing applications by covering the area of deploying and dynamically scaling applications in the cloud, as well as mobile platforms that would utilize ACE to create their own market or application store.
Using Apache ACE, updates and new components can be easily distributed while keeping a full history of what was installed where and during what period. In addition, ACE helps developers set up an automated development, QA/testing, staging, and production environment.
Initially donated to the Apache Incubator in 2009 by software solutions provider Luminis, a diverse and international group of developers joined the initial developers of the ACE code base to successfully form the Apache ACE community.
"We are excited that ACE has successfully graduated as a Top-Level Project," said Marcel Offermans, Vice President of Apache ACE and Fellow at Luminis. "Developing projects 'The Apache Way' stimulates widespread cooperation with individuals that each bring their specific knowledge to the project. Diversity is key -- the community is evolving the project in new and interesting ways, leveraging the collective expertise."
Availability and Oversight
Apache ACE software is released under the Apache License v2.0, and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project's day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases. Apache ACE source code, documentation, mailing lists, and related resources are available at http://ace.apache.org/.
