Today we remember those brave souls who fought in foreign lands for the freedoms we take for granted today. Lest we forget .
As today was a public holiday I began work on what will (hopefully soon) become Tornado Server v4. Version 4 will be a huge leap forward, most notably will be the ability to embed a Tornado Server in almost any Java app. The main reason for this will be so that we can run Tornado as a servlet - this will allow companies to run Tornado on top of their existing J2EE stack and provide better integration with Apache (and PHP, webdav, and all that other good stuff). Fear not, you'll still be able to use Tornado in its current guise but the changes will make Tornado far more flexible and it will be able to be run anywhere.
The challenge for us is to rip out and refactor Tornado's heart while making every .pma application run as it does today. No mean feat! The reshuffle should also mean better caching of application elements and therefore even better performance!
If you have some wishes for v4, drop me a line ;-)
