Great News: NetRexx Open Source

rvjansen
I am very happy to be able to announce that today, the 8th of June 2011 (World IPv6 Day) IBM has sent RexxLA the source code of the reference implementation of the NetRexx translator for administration and release under the ICU open source license. I would like to thank IBM, and everyone at IBM and RexxLA who has put in hard work to make this possible. This has secured the future of NetRexx, our favourite computer language, and enables us to do work on it to keep it up to date whenever this seems necessary. A special thanks to Mike Cowlishaw is in order, who not only invented and produced the language, but also was of invaluable assistance during the open source process.

This brings an end to a long period in which some have expressed doubts regarding the perspective of the language and the intentions of the parties involved. Now that we have this behind us, the real work can start. The language board will convene and draw up plans for the future. Because a lot of the work of readying the source code for publication has been done over the years past, there will be no long delay in having it available in a source code repository on the net. The www.netrexx.org site will be on the air shortly. For those of you who cannot wait: drop me a line.

The IBM NetRexx web site will be changed to reflect this new status of NetRexx, and will cease to function later this year. The binary distribution will be available from www.netrexx.org initially and will reflect NetRexx 3.00, which is an almost unchanged release that contains the required source code modifications of the translator and has some small fragments of code adapted to be able to build on more recent Java versions. It is expected that 3.01 will be available from the code repository and will be the first official RexxLA release. We also expect IBM to cease the support for this mailing list; all members will be informed timely of the new location to discuss all things NetRexx.

best regards,

René Vincent Jansen
President, Rexx Language Association.

The bad news is that the World ends tonight, after hell freezes over.

Congrats to everyone involved. Now the race begins to see who types

In reply to this post by rvjansen
Hello Rene,
    1.) my congratulations to all of you who made this nearly never
ending story happening.
    2.) I'm currently read to release the Rey RUN-Time package, which
essentlially is a slightly modified & expanded version of the ancient
Rexx2Nrx
run time package as described on www.Rexx2Nrx.com (releaseing the source
code, all now in Netrexx) as well.
    3.) Now, I would like to know what this group thinks where it should
reside:

a) on the new www.NetRexx.org site
b) or on www.KENAI.com

    I will *not*, however, put the (my) source code to www.thsitc.com,
but I'm ready to deliver all my HTML documentation (which will need some
updates) to the proper place.

   I don't like, at the moment, to bother you with other details, as I'm
busy with
other prospects here in Austria for other products.

Rene, and all, please let me and us know which way you want to go.

Centralizing anything NetRexx related at www.netrexx.org is, and would be,
as I think, the best idea.

When I can do any contribution, I'll be happy to do so.

Thomas.

Wow! Many thanks to you and Mike and everyone who made this possible. I
was beginning to wonder if we would ever see this day! Even if this does
not make it to the international news reports, I consider it to be of
major importance!

Questions/Suggestions:

Will you set up a wiki to document NetRexx and discuss changes and fixes
or should someone else?

I suggest some sort of linked list with a separate page to discuss each
enhancement or fix request and perhaps even some sort of voting
mechanism for requirements like we used to do at Share.

René, while I certainly want to add my, "Wow!" to the list of happy
users, I do want to take the time to thank you, and every member of your
team (and, indeed, anyone who helped bring this about).  It was a long
time coming, riddled with FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) ... but you
(and yours) toughed it out and got the job done.  It is your hard work
that deserves the recognition.  Thank you, for all your efforts on our
combined behalf.  And congratulations!

Nicely done.  And I appreciate the effort you expended.

Tom.

at IBM and RexxLA who has put in hard work to make this possible. This has
secured the future of NetRexx, our favourite computer language, and enables
us to do work on it to keep it up to date whenever this seems necessary. A
special thanks to Mike Cowlishaw is in order, who not only invented and
produced the language, but also was of invaluable assistance during the
open source process.

regarding the perspective of the language and the intentions of the parties
involved. Now that we have this behind us, the real work can start. The
language board will convene and draw up plans for the future. Because a lot
of the work of readying the source code for publication has been done over
the years past, there will be no long delay in having it available in a
source code repository on the net. The www.netrexx.org site will be on the
air shortly. For those of you who cannot wait: drop me a line.

NetRexx, and will cease to function later this year. The binary
distribution will be available from www.netrexx.org initially and will
reflect NetRexx 3.00, which is an almost unchanged release that contains
the required source code modifications of the translator and has some small
fragments of code adapted to be able to build on more recent Java versions.
It is expected that 3.01 will be available from the code repository and
will be the first official RexxLA release. We also expect IBM to cease the
support for this mailing list; all members will be informed timely of the
new location to discuss all things NetRexx.

Just a quick question. The ICU license is this International Components for Unicode one?

Thanks

René, while I certainly want to add my, "Wow!" to the list of happy users, I do want to take the time to thank you, and every member of your team (and, indeed, anyone who helped bring this about).  It was a long time coming, riddled with FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) ... but you (and yours) toughed it out and got the job done.  It is your hard work that deserves the recognition.  Thank you, for all your efforts on our combined behalf.  And congratulations!

Nicely done.  And I appreciate the effort you expended.

Tom.

Great news and congratulations to all that put the hard work in to make it happen.

I know this is early, but should we look into the process of getting ONR in various Linux distributions and possible articles in selected magazines.

Again thanks to all who made this happen.

Joe

yes it is. We originally went for CPL like ooRexx but this is what came out of legal. On first look it looks even more liberal so I got no qualms with it.

best regards,

René Jansen.

I am glad this has finally occurred as I have known it was potentially
imminent for a ccouple of months.   I was contacted by some legal people
in IBM for the best way to get "something" to our lab director, who was
the final arbiter as to whether this could be released or not.   I guess
he said yes :)

As for the mailing list - this is not an "official" IBM project and
there has been no pressure of any sort for me to close it down.    I'm
happy to keep it running but if the community think somewhere else is
better now then I am equally as happy to close it down.   It's up to you
lot really.

Ian

Thanks to you, Ian, for keeping this list still running and also thanks
to the IBM lab director for his decision :-)
