Flume 1.2.0 released

The Apache Flume Team released yesterday the next large release with number 1.2.0. Here a overview about the fixes and additions (thanks Mike, I copy your overview):

Apache Flume 1.2.0 is the third release under the auspices of Apache of the so-called "NG" codeline, and our first release as a top-level Apache project! Flume 1.2.0 has been put through many stress and regression tests, is stable, production-ready software, and is backwards-compatible with Flume 1.1.0. Four months of very active development went into this release: a whopping 192 patches were committed since 1.1.0, representing many features, enhancements, and bug fixes. While the full change log can be found in the link below, here are a few new feature highlights:

* New durable file channel 
* New client API 
* New HBase sinks (two different implementations) 
* New Interceptor interface (a plugin processing API) 
* New JMX-based monitoring support

With this release - the first after evolving into a tier 1 Apache project - we've updated the website and firstly have a well written UserGuide (again thanks to Mike and Ralph for their great effort).

Api-Documention:  http://flume.apache.org/releases/content/1.2.0/apidocs/

What's the next?
Now, we got a increasing interest into a Windows version. I don't know why, but that's happen. I try to port some of the sinks into a Windows Platform - if you're a Windows Developer and you've time to spent into the project, all hands are welcome.
