Lifting the curtain: Tonight we lifted the curtain a bit on the new version of the Cocoon portal we are currently working on, together with several customers. Tomorrow the current codebase of the new portal will be donated back to the Cocoon project. What we currently is have is a higly flexible rendering engine for portal-type layouts (not limited to being used in an actual portal). Stuff like tabbed layouts, tables in tables, multi-column spanning coplets (or portlets if you prefer), coplets that can be made full screen etc. A whole bag of goodies - already. In the next few weeks we will be adding more bits and pieces - but we wanted to get it out there early. This wouldn't have been possible without the support of other interested parties already using the current portal and who were interested in moving it to the next level. Thanks.

Hotel booked: Ok, I booked my hotel for OSCON. I'll be in Portland from July 5th to the 12th.   

Steve, the author: Steve is joining the ranks of us book authors :-). Welcome.   

Can't register: I wanted to register for OSCON - but the process fails after I enter credit card information - no error details - just a 404. Help.
