            General Availability release of Funambol v3.0
            The Funambol Team is very pleased to announce the General Availability release of Funambol v3.0.

            You can download the v3.0 GA bundle and individual components here:

            ...and see what's changed (from Sync4j v2.3 to Funambol v3.0) here:

            http://www.funambol.com/opensource/whatsnew3v0stable.html

            This GA release for Funambol v3.0 marks a significant milestone for Funambol and for the Funambol open source community. Community members have made considerable contributions to this GA release and it shows in the high quality of the software.

            With the help of the community, Funambol is also striving to increase the reach of software so that it is interoperable with as many applications and services as possible (in response to community demand, the MS Exchange and Lotus Domino Connectors were re-released and are now available).

            Since the preview release of v3.0 earlier this year, the number of Funambol downloads has doubled to over 600,000. Funambol is putting mobile open source on the map and challenging proprietary mobile email vendors.

            Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support.

            Enjoy the software!

            Funambol Community Code Sniper Program launch
            We are pleased to announce the launch of the Funambol Community Code Sniper Program.

            The main goal of the program is to broaden interoperability of the Funambol mobile application server to connect with as many useful, widely-requested applications and services as possible (based on feedback from community members). This feedback was generated primarily from a series of surveys that were presented to the community over the past few months.

            Also based on this feedback, Funambol is responding by refocusing its efforts to better address community demands (e.g. the MS Exchange and Lotus Domino Connectors were the most widely requested Connectors in the survey and, therefore, will be made available with the GA release of Funambol v3.0 in the coming weeks).

            Another goal of the Code Sniper Program is to make sure contributors to these community-requested projects are widely recognized and well rewarded (with bounties of up to $2000). The Funambol Community is full of talented developers and these people should have a chance to shine.

            Code Sniper Highlights:

            Participating community members will follow a 5-stage process which
            includes: 1-selecting a project, 2-submitting a general one-page proposal, 3-submitting a more detailed product specification, 4-delivering the code, 5-submitting to community testing. See here for all program details:

            http://www.funambol.com/opensource/codesniperprogram.html

            This is an exciting time for the Funambol Open Source Community. I'm sure everyone is eager to see what the community can produce for this program. Let the Code Sniping begin!

            The Honest Public License
            Just wanted to let everyone know that Funambol's CEO, Fabrizio Capobianco, has a posting on his blog that you all should read (posted Monday morning, August 14, Pacific Daylight Time).


            In it, he discusses a proposed modification of GPL v2 to address the "ASP loophole", effectively creating the first draft of the Honest Public License (HPL). Funambol will leave this draft open for community comments and feedback for the next 30 days.


            As members of the Funambol Open Source Community, you all can have a voice to influence this change. We want to hear from you and hope you will take some time to give your feedback on this important issue.


            Here's a link to the blog posting:

            Funambol v3.0 beta 5 is out
            The Funambol Project Team is pleased to announce that v3.0 beta 5 has been released.

            You can download beta 5 here:

            http://www.funambol.com/opensource/downloads.html (http://www.funambol.com/opensource/downloads.html)

            ...and see what's new in beta 5 here:

            http://www.funambol.com/opensource/whatsnew3v0beta5.html (http://www.funambol.com/opensource/whatsnew3v0beta5.html)

            One of the first things you'll notice when you go to download is that the download page has been redesigned. This new page is a significant improvement over the old one for the following reasons:


                  + better organized with better navigation and more intuitive page design

                  + functionality of server bundles is now highlighted and easier to find

                  + back revs of all components are easier to find

                  + easier to associate components with each release (and, therefore, to understand compatibilities)

            We hope you like and benefit from the new design and welcome your feedback (feel free to send any comments directly to me).

            Something else that I think is important to mention regarding the v3.0 beta
            5 release - there were a record number of bugs fixed in this release. So, not only is quality continuing to improve, but it's improving at an impressive pace.

            I have no doubt this was made possible by the community's active participation in the Bag-a-Bug Program. The BaB Program is ongoing and you should check out the current leaders / contributors at your convenience - http://www.funambol.com/opensource/bag-a-bugprogram.html (http://www.funambol.com/opensource/bag-a-bugprogram.html)

            Every day brings us closer to the v3.0 stable release. Enjoy beta 5!

            Best regards,

            Jason M. Finkelstein
