Nexus Live, October 2014 - Gene Kim, Josh Corman, TheNEXUS

During the October 2014 broadcast of Nexus Live we were able to catch up with Gene Kim and Josh Corman to find out what's in store for the DevOps Enterprise Summit in the Bay Area at the end of the month. We also took a quick look at TheNEXUS, the new community site for Nexus, Nexus Pro and CLM. Take a look:

npm registry support for all!

Continuing our commitment to the open source community we are taking Nexus OSS to another level. After adding NuGet support in Nexus 2.9 for FREE in Nexus OSS (a long time paid feature of Nexus Professional) our engineering team is at it again. I remember when we created the issue tracker ticket to support npm in Nexus over a year ago. Node.js development and usage of npm registries was on the horizon and making its way into companies more and more. Tools like Grunt have only gotten more traction since then.

Nexus OSS Meets NuGet

The NuGet package manager has become the standard for developing software on the Microsoft platform which includes.NET and the NuGet Gallery that has emerged as a large public open source package repository. Sonatype Nexus, on the other hand, is the standard repository or component manager software running on servers from small open source projects and teams to multi-national Fortune 500 companies.

Nexus 3.0 Technology Preview (Milestone 1 Release)

The Nexus development team at Sonatype is pleased to announce the release of the first milestone build (M1) of Nexus 3. This release is a technology preview covering the open source version, Nexus OSS, focused specifically on the new user interface. Nexus Pro will be covered in the upcoming M2 release.

The Atlassian Story with guest Tim Pettersen on Nexus Live

Developers around the world are using BitBucket, Stash, Confluence, Jira and HipChat to help manage their projects. In the July 31 installment of Nexus Live, we'll talk with Tim Pettersen, Developer Advocate at Atlassian. We'll find out what's in store for future releases and how his team is using Nexus to help manage their open source projects.

Nexus holds the top market share, the data speaks for itself

RebelLabs recently put out their Java Tools and Technologies Landscape report and we were very pleased to see Nexus chosen as the component manager of choice by 64% of developers. We saw this same preference carry over in our own recent Open Source Development survey, where 49% of respondents indicated they used Nexus OSS and 17% indicated they used Nexus Pro as their local component manager. Whether you looked at OSS or Pro component managers, Sonatype’s platforms were used by a 4-to-1 margin over the other market alternatives. While any reasonable person could argue that the results from our survey were skewed, the results encouraged us to analyze these market trends further using data that holds a stronger voice of the truth.

Book Update: Repository Management with Nexus

With the recent release of Nexus 2.8, we've updated the online documentation, Repository Management with Nexus (2.8). The most recent addition to the documentation has been the inclusion of a comprehensive search. For a book this size, this is an essential resource for finding what you need.
