The “modern” ASP.NET web stack is fully opensource: ASP.NET MVC, Web API, ASP.NET WebPage and Razor

Still getting my head around this early morning (in Europe timezone) announcement on ScottGu’s blog: ASP.NET MVC, Web API, Razor and Open Source. Some of you might remember that almost 3 years ago the announced that ASP.NET MVC v1 was being released under the MS-PL license, thus making it opensource. That turned out to be just a source snapshot of each public release, and were not accepting contributions, so, a “partial” commitment to open source. This time is different: the source code is available from the “live” repository the ASP.NET team is working on, and they are going...

Lucene.Net needs your help (or it will die)

UPDATE: There is a follow-up, which explains what happened in the community after this post: What happened to Lucene.Net? It got forked Lucene.Net, the .NET version of the famous Lucene search engine, is in a pretty critical stage. The short version is that Apache Software Foundation is considering killing the project because the community behind Lucene.Net is not active enough and since the project graduated from the incubator to a real project on its own, no “official” releases have been made (only source releases) and the site is not compliant to the “branding” guidelines. For the long version,...

Is IronRuby being un-funded just the tip of an iceberg?

Today when I woke up and started skimming my twitter feed, I was stuck by a flood of comments about IronRuby being somehow discontinued. Not really killed, but, as Jimmy Schementi says in his post that announces his change of job, moved out of the pool of opensource projects that Microsoft is directly funding. Justin Etheredge already commented on what it means for IronRuby itself, but I want to analyze the fact from an another angle. Maybe I'm just paranoid, and unfunding IronRuby is just... unfunding IronRuby, but the facts are leading me to think (and might lead also other people...

April’s fool or not? ASP.NET MVC source released under MS-PL

I’m still not convinced completely (the news was announced on April 1st), but seems like ASP.NET MVC source code has been released under MS-PL license, a OSI approved open source license. I’m excited today to announce that we are also releasing the ASP.NET MVC source code under the Microsoft Public License (MS-PL).  MS-PL is an OSI-approved open source license.  The MS-PL contains no platform restrictions and provides broad rights to modify and redistribute the source code. Codeplex license is not updated yet, but at this point I guess ASP.NET MVC deserves a project of its own as the asp.net codeplex project...

Oxite: OpenSource CMS from Microsoft built on ASP.NET MVC

I was on the mountains skiing during this last weekend so I might have missed some big announcement from the .NET blogosphere, but today I found on many “official” IT online magazines (thanks to aspdotnetmvc.com) that the team behind Channel 9 (and 8, 10 and Mix Online) just released on CodePlex the blogging/CMS platform they developed to build Mix Online: Oxite. Oxite is an open source, standards compliant, and highly extensible content management platform that can run anything from blogs to big web sites. We know this because it runs MIX Online. It’s developed with ASP.NET MVC and has been designed...

2007 OpenSource Carved Pumpkin

In 2005, Shaun Walker, founder of DotNetNuke carved the DNN logo in his Halloween pumpkin. Last year, in 2006, I carved into my pumpkin the Subtext submarine. Now with Halloween just a few days away, who is going to carve the logo of his OpenSource project into his pumpkin? Are we going to see Ayende carving his Rhino? Or Rob Conery carving the angle-bracketed DB of Subsonic? Or maybe Ivan carving the (Iron)Ruby gem? So, who's next? Technorati tags: Halloween, pumpkin, Opensource, logo

LinkLift Control: here is the code

Last weekend I released a small ASP.NET User Control to display the Text Links provided by LinkLift. I also promised that I would have released the code for it. This weekend, among other things, I cleaned it up a bit, I fixed a small bug and here it is: Download the source of the  LinkLift ASP.NET control. I also set up a project on Google Code to store all my opensource projects that are too small to have their own repository, and I called it, ala Ayende, CodeClimber.Commons. And will move all my personal code on it soon. Technorati tags: linklift,...
