Mark Wielaard: New GPG key.
Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

Hudson on the Rise: CloudBees and Indeed Job Trends
Two news items attest to the traction Hudson is gaining in the automated build market. Our latest java.net Spotlight is the Hudson Labs announcement CloudBees announce Hudson-as-a-Service. What's CloudBees? Here's the vision statement from their Welcome to CloudBees blog post:
At CloudBees we think that the cloud is the new platform, where applications will shift to over time. Yet, for this to happen en masse, true cloud-native infrastructure has to be available – this cannot be a mere packaging of existing products with a “cloud” stamp on it. As we shift towards this new paradigm, CloudBees aims at becoming the leading Platform as a Service (PaaS) for Java applications. And while CloudBees' platform will initially appeal to end-user companies, our platform is built with ISVs in mind: we envision that most ISVs will have to morph into a SaaS model if they want to outlive their SaaS competitors. Yet, given the complexity involved, very few ISVs will find it viable to develop their own multi-tenant architecture.Furthermore, CloudBees will not just focus on a production-time Java PaaS: we will deliver an offering that covers the complete applications' lifecycle, from dev to production, through staging and QA.
