ASF Announces Apache ACE is Now a Top-Level Project
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has announced that Apache ACE has now become a Top-Level Project (TLP).
Apache ACE is designed to help developers manage various aspects of software installation such as the dependencies, deployment, and feedback. ACE is said to be useful in creating own market or application stores, and when scaling across embedded and cloud computing applications, the company stated in a press release.
“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.”
Apache ACE is a software distribution framework used to manage and distribute software components. Users can distribute udpates while keeping track of installation history. ACE also helps developers set up an automated development, QA/testing and other various features.
Recently, the company released Version 2.4 of its widely used open source HTTP server software.
