The Eclipse Foundation on Wednesday made available 21 projects for software developers in a release called Europa.
Twice the size of last year's record-setting Callisto release, it contains 17 million lines of code and contributions from more than 310 open source developers in 19 countries, reports internetnews.com.
Eclipse hopes that in releasing the projects, vendors can build products using this software and add capabilities to it, reports PCWorld.com. The simultaneous release makes it faster and easier to adopt the projects.
The Europa release includes new runtime technology for creating server applications, developer tools for service-oriented architecture, tools to improve team collaboration, and support for users of the Ruby programming language.
