DataVision Wiki enabled

DataVision now has a Wiki! See the Wiki link up top? Well, go forth and have at it! The development team will add content as time allows, but we're hoping the community starts to contribute long before then as we think that's where the best content will come from anyway. That is, after the whole whole point of Wikis to begin with!

License changed to ASL 2.0

DataVision is now maintained under the Apache Software License 2.0. A new version for the sole purpose of updating the license is NOT planned, however, the current version 1.0.0 can now be used under 2.0, you can safely ignore anyplace in the distro that indicates v1.1, that is now officially superceded. Future versions will of course properly indicate 2.0. Please feel free to contact project admin Frank Zammetti if you have any questions on this.

Missing classes in DataVision.jar 0.9.0: fix this evening

A frustrated user has discovered a bad problem with the 0.9.0 release of DataVision. When I reorganized the code, creating the new package jimm.util, I forgot to add that to the list of packages that gets put into DataVision.jar.

I will release a fixed version of DataVision this evening, version 0.9.1.

I am sorry about this problem, and will figure out how to prevent it in the future.

DataVision now using CVS

I've started using CVS for DataVision. To browse the latest source via the Web or grab your own copy whenever you want, visit <http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=33343>. The only "modulename" you will need is "datavision".

When you're surfing the sources via the web, I noticed that clicking on the file name does not display the contents, it displays the CVS revision history. Click on the "Rev" link (the revision number) to the right of the file name to see the current source.
