Mavibot: A new project to create a replacement for JDBM in the Apache Directory Server, Mavibot, just released the first milestone code for its MVCC BTree implementation. They aim to offer a faster alternative with concurrent reads and writes, transactions, bulk loads, multi-version support and in-memory BTree.
Brackets: Adobe’s web-centric open source editor Brackets is now available to preview on Linux. The editor depends on the Chromium Embedded Framework and has required work to make that deliverable on Ubuntu and Debian. Well, thats done now and preview builds – albeit missing live preview highlights, file rename and delete and extension management – are now shipping. The developers are looking for Linux/C++ hands to help round out the development.
