Developer Break: Node.js, Apaches and Celery
Developer Break – catching the smaller but important changes and updates to tools and specifications, utilities and libraries:
- Apache developers have also been busy. An update of Commons IO to version 2.4 added some features and fixes including correctly defining how big a yottabyte is. Another small update arrived in the form of Apache Tomcat 7.0.29 fixing some regressions and adding support for a default error page. The Apache HTTPComponents project also got a minor update to version 4.2.1 to "address a number of issues". According to the release notes, that number is eight.
- Celery, the asynchronous distributed task queue/job queue framework for Python, received a major update with Celery 3.0, with a "new and improved API", a new RabbitMQ client and many other improvements to BSD (3-clause) licensed software.
