1 Last rites for dev-java/datavision
3 Last upstream release was 1.0.0 on November 8, 2005. Recent itext
4 updates have caused datavision to fail during compile. I personally am
5 not interested in patching or updating datavision. It's the only package
6 at the moment that breaks with recent itext updated, and does not seem
7 enough to justify slotting itext.
9 There has been little developer activity, only two devs on project. It
10 seems one is a little active lately, but not much. The news on the web
11 site has not been updated since 2004-02-09.
13 The package has been masked, and will be moved to Java junkyard overlay
14 after 30 days pass. Unless someone cares about this package, needs it,
15 uses it, and/or is willing to patch/updated it.
