Last month, the Apache board approved a resolution to establish the Apache Continuum project. So after just short of 3 years as part of the Apache Maven project, Continuum has grown to the size of being a project in its own right, and moved out to it’s new home at http://continuum.apache.org/. There are 13 committers on the initial roster, and the new chair of the project is Emmanuel Venisse.
While Continuum will still be an easy-to-use, enterprise-ready build server for Maven projects, it will also be looking to add new features in the near future.
Discussion has been active lately about the direction of the project in upcoming releases, and a roadmap formed for "2.0", with the intention of incremental releases towards that path. Some of the focus will be around using more well-known technologies as the underpinnings for the system so that it will be easier for new contributors get involved.
Congratulations to the Continuum team, and I look forward to the future!
