I’m pleased to announce that Logger has found a new home and will be maintained by OraOpenSource. A very big thank you goes out to Tyler Muth for starting this project many years ago and handing over the reins to OraOpenSource.
Here’s a brief FAQ regarding the move:
Logger is a (free) open source logging tool for Oracle PL/SQL. It is used in many instances ranging from small applications to very large applications in major corporations.
They’ll still work. The project was forked and a notice was put up on the old Github site letting people know its new home.
Yes. We’ll update the license slightly so that it will be easier to understand and use within your code. This will not affect any existing implementations.
I did a lot of work last year, then was sidelined with my concussion. It turns out that picking up a project after not touching it for 8 months takes some time.
Since I’m working on this project as part of my rehab I can not give a definite time frame. As soon as the beta version is ready I’ll make it available.
Over the years I have written a lot about Logger and posted it on this blog. To maintain a consistent branding and marketing effort all future posts regarding Logger will be on OraOpenSource’s blog.
Right now the best thing you can do is sign up for the email list (link on oraopensource.com/logger). We’ll be announcing the beta version and next major release when it’s available. You can also follow OraOpenSource on twitter: @oraopensource.
Once the next release is available we’ll be looking for help from the community to continue to develop and maintain Logger.
