# Development:

- The new AMQP 1.0 JMS client had its first release as mentioned earlier.
  We have been working on improvements and fixes since then and will be
  looking to do a 0.2.0 release imminently.

- Discussions and work to begin preparing for a Qpid Proton 0.10 have
  begun, incorporating some major SASL related changes since 0.9. Work
  also continues on expanding language support for the new Reactor API's
  to Go, C++, Ruby, and Java, some of which may be aimed at the following

- Following the Qpid 0.32 release there was intent to reorganise the
  repository structure to better support releasing the various components
  on their own schedules going forward, as has been the case for newer
  components. The Java broker, earlier clients and associated items have
  been relocated to a new trunk, with further relocations still to come
  for other components.
