Subject: [OSGeo-Announce] OpenLayers Graduates Incubation
To: announce at lists.osgeo.org

OSGeo and the OpenLayers project are pleased to announce that OpenLayers
has graduated from the incubation process and is now a full fledged OSGeo

OpenLayers is a pure JavaScript library for displaying map data of many
different formats (WMS ,WFS, Mapserver, GeoRSS, GML, TMS, GMaps,
Virtual Earth, Yahoo.. and more) in most modern web browsers, and with
no server-side dependencies. OpenLayers unites all these disparate data
sources by implementing a single, intuitive JavaScript API, which allows
developers to quickly and efficiently build rich web-based geographic


Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community operation,
a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license
verification and general good project operation.  Graduating incubation
is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of
the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
