WANdisco applauds release of Apache Bloodhound

Original Project Submitter, WANdisco, Supports Project with On-Staff Committers

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, is pleased to support Apache Bloodhound, which was officially announced today as a Top-Level Project (TLP) by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Originally submitted to the ASF in December 2011 by WANdisco, Bloodhound is a software development collaboration tool based on Trac that includes a Subversion repository browser, wiki, and defect tracker.

The WANdisco developers serving on the Project Management Committee (PMC) or participating at some level in the development of Bloodhound have been involved since the project's inception. Apache Bloodhound is an issue tracker with a tightly integrated source code browser that works with Apache Subversion and Git. It also provides Wiki functionality and is compatible with hundreds of free plugins available for Trac, allowing users to customize their experience even further.

"WANdisco received many requests for an issue tracker and at the time, open source options available for integration were limited, which is why we decided to invest in setting one up in the Apache Incubator," said David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. "WANdisco has been actively supportive of the ASF, and we're proud to have played a leading role in Bloodhound."

"When Bloodhound entered the incubator, while it was built on the Trac framework, it was a completely new project," said Gary Martin, Vice President of Apache Bloodhound and WANdisco developer. "Bloodhound's strengths lie in its powerful combination of Apache Subversion source control and robust ticket system."
