This release has become possible thanks to the effort of many people, but specially thanks to Blandware (http://www.blandware.com) an IT Russian company that has become co-owner of jLibrary and will contribute to its evolution, improvement and success. Blandware is the combination of profound educational background and R&D traditions and has deep expertise in JEE applications, especially in the area of Content Management Systems (CMS). Blandware has its own two open-source CMS projects: AtLeap (http://atleap.dev.java.net) and AtLeapLite (http://atleaplite.sourceforge.net/).
We would like to thank with no special order to Ryszard Perkowski, Renata Perkowska, Daniel Latorre, Roman Puchkovski and Andrey Grebnev, this last two from Blandware, for their help and effort bringing this release to life. Without them this work would have never seen the light. As you probably know by the news entries, Andrey has become a rightful owner of the project and will lead with myself the project to a hopefully brighter future.
We really hope you like jLibrary!
