We cover some of the big things that have happend since the last podcast such as the JBoss.org Security Incident, the upcoming JUDCon conference, changes around the jBPM project, the new Maven repository at JBoss, Hibernate 3.5 and JBoss Tools releases.
In the end we briefly talk about the VMForce annoncement and other cloud offerings.
While I was trapped in the snowy mountains, Emmanuel and Michael recorded this podcast which has short news and a talk with Bob McWirther about his work regarding TorqueBox.
They talk about what TorqueBox brings to the table for both Java and Ruby developers and how TorqueBox via the JBoss AS 5 micro-container architecture enables Ruby to run inside AS 5 and optionally utilize the Java environment for its added functionality and especially clustering facilities.
Bob also talks about why he started The CodeHaus, help gave birth to Groovy and how he got involved into JBoss via his Drools and OSS community work.

In this late night episode Emmanuel has a confession concerning clustered Lucene indexes
The news are a compacted version of the massive number of releases JBoss.org did, at least known to us, in December and January
And finally we have Andrew and Aslak dropping in to talk about Embedded AS, ShrinkWrap and Arquillian - all ongoing prototype work to speed up and improve our unit and integration testing with EE application containers.
Both Max and Aslak had issues with their connection during this interview, so the audio quality is not perfect in places but we hope you will enjoy it anyway.

This one is a recording Emmanuel and I did at Devoxx with Manik Surtani on the topic of Infinispan.
We managed to cover a lot of ground in this one about Clustering, scalability, distributed caching, massive indexing and queryable caches via Hibernate Search.
We even let Manik explain what Infinispan is and what he thinks about Devoxx.

Emmanuel and I sat down with Pete and Dan at Devoxx to talk about CDI and Weld.
Dan and Pete present what is CDI and what is Weld.
We discuss how CDI portable extensions allows you to extend and build on top instead of around the standard platform.
And of course you get to hear how Dan and Pete ended up working within the JBoss Community.
Get it all and more from Episode 6 at The Asylum.

We just published the second episode of JBoss Community Asylum.
This time we sat down with Aaron Walker, a long time JBoss Community member which started his involvement all the way back to JBoss 2. From there on he worked on messaging, drools, hibernate search and others. Aaron also gives his advice on how to get involved with JBoss projects and how he learned to cope with being Brock'ed.
In the short news we touch upon Google summer of code, Beer, Java 5 being end-of-life and more.
