After more than a year’s worth of collaboration between OpenSocial Foundation and various members of OpenAjax Alliance, yesterday OpenSocial Foundation announced the release of the OpenSocial 1.1 specification. One of the major new features in version 1.1 of OpenSocial Gadgets is the inclusion of OpenAjax Hub as the mechanism for inter-gadget communication.
The announcement talks about the use of OpenAjax Hub:
OpenAjax Hub is included in the Gadgets spec mostly via reference to the OpenAjax Hub 2.0 Specification. The Apache Shindig open source implementation (version 2.0.x) includes the OAHub source code within its distribution.
Congratulations to everyone! It isn’t often that major parts of the industry get on the same technology page.
