A couple of years ago (way back on May 22nd, 2006) James Snell posted on the Apache Incubator General list about a new project he wanted to bring to the incubator. That project ended up becoming Abdera, and now over two years later it's finally graduated to become its own new top level Apache project. It took a really long time, and a lot of people put in a lot of work, but I'm happy to say that Abdera has become a nice little community built around some neat code, and I'm quite proud to see it moving on from the incubator to bigger and better things.
The actual move from the incubator to our new home at abdera.apache.org will happen over the next few weeks, but for now lets just give the Abdera developers a round of applause. They've really done something great.
