Proxool 0.9.0RC2

Only a few changes since RC1, but the most important is our upgrade to Cglib 2.1_3. With the use of Jar Jar Links we can now keep up to date very easily. See the change log for details.

0.9.0RC1

810 days. What a long gap between releases! 0.9.0 has been in the pipeline for many months now and a considerable amount of work was put in during 2004 and, to a lesser extent, 2005. Unfortunately, we let things slip and this release is well overdue. Thank you to all the people who continue to use Proxool and tell us so. There are no known problems with this release but, as ever, you should remember that it is only a release candidate. The latest stable release remains 0.8.3. See the http://proxool.sourceforge.net/changelog.html for details.

10,000 Downloads :)

No news for a while, so I thought it would be worth pointing out that we have just passed 10,000 downloads for Proxool. And this is a good opportunity to assure people that we haven't stopped development - we've just been a little quiet. The mailing lists remain busy and we have completed a lot of the work required for version 0.9.0. This will bring the long awaited DataSource implementation to Proxool (amongst other changes). Thanks for your patience and for your continuing support.... read more

Proxool 0.8.3

Changes to allow Proxool to work with Cglib 2.0. If you upgraded to Hibernate 2.1 then you will need to upgrade to Proxool 0.8.3.

Proxool forums dropped in favour of mailling lists

We have removed the forums. The developer and user mailing lists are the preferred place for questions and discussions and it was confusing having everything in two places. All the forum messages have been forwarded to the user mailing list (sorry for the flood of emails). You can find out more about the mailing lists here: http://sourceforge.net/forum/?group_id=53958.

Proxool 0.8.2

Fixes a bug which meant that no delegate driver properties (other than username and password) were being passed onto the delegate driver. If you don't pass on any delegate properties then you won't be affected. See change log for details.

Proxool 0.8.0

0.8.0 has been a long time coming, thank you for your patience. It is the first release with JDK independence. Or more precisely, Proxool now runs, out of the box, on JDK1.2 and up. (We used to support JDK1.2 with a series of Ant applied patches which was a bit messy). We now make use of cglib's proxy code to do this. Proxool is also now available as a JMX component to help you to control it even more easily. There have been quite a few bug fixes and useful enhancements too. All users are recommended to upgrade to 0.8.0. See change log for details.

The Road Ahead for Proxool

We're planning release 0.5 about 15 November 2002. And release 1.0 before the end of the year. Now is a good time to lobby for what you think is missing. (I'm not so much thinking of new features, but ease of use, better documentation, things that would stop you choosing Proxool.)

Release 0.4

Lots of improvements in this release. Refactoring for JDK 1.4 (still compatible with 1.3 and patch exists for 1.2). Much better source code organisation (including use of Ant to build). Better testing. More comprehensive web site and documentation.

Release 0.3

I released version 0.3 on Friday.A few bug fixes, and a better FileLogger. You should upgrade to 0.3.

Release 0.2

I've been working on the API and a few small bug fixes. This is now pretty much how it's going to be for 1.0 release I hope. And the web site has a LOT more information on it. I'm almost embarrassed at how little information I expected people to work with before. Anyway, enjoy.
