I'm really not sure why I thought JAI-tools was a good name for the project, as opposed to just JAITools. Not only does the dash fail to serve any real purpose in the name, it also guaranteed a clash with package names. And because it seemed more natural for the project's Maven group Id to follow the package names ("jaitools") rather than the project name ("jai-tools") things went from dumb to dumber.

So, the time has come for a radical hyphenectomy (dash removal) consisting of the following changes:
  • A new project web site will be set up at http://jaitools.org. The existing API docs and Jiffle user guide have already been moved from http://jai-tools.org to the new domain.
  • The project's Google Code website is being moved from http://code.google.com/p/jai-tools to http://code.google.com/p/jaitools
  • The root package name and Maven groupId for both JAITools and Jiffle will be org.jaitools
  • This blog will move to http://jaitools.blogspot.com
The new Maven groupId and package names will take effect with the next release: version 1.2.0 for JAITools and version 0.2.0 for Jiffle, both of which are due before the end of this month (June 2011).

Update - 18 June 2011

All project sources have now been moved to the new Google Code site: http://code.google.com/p/jaitools/.
