HiveMind 2 is on its way.
Its main features are:
- XML dependencies removed from core and placed in separate hivemind-xml library
- Pure java API for the definition of modules (services, configurations etc.)
- Annotation based API for the definition of modules
- Explicit and extensible Autowiring Service
- Configurations not longer restricted to lists and maps
Expect to find some info here soon and an alpha version in February 2007.
