They grow old so fast...

Two years ago, I initiated the Mule IDE project, an Eclipse plugin for the Mule ESB. It was started as a hobby project back when "Mule UMO" was mostly a (popular!) community effort with a few dedicated developers working on it.

Since then, things have really taken off for the Mule ESB, and it's now the centrepiece of MuleSource, Inc. - arguably an Open Source success story. Meanwhile, Mule IDE hasn't received too much attention since the 1.3 version from February '07 (as I have too many other (offline) things going on)

But that's all changed, since Ted and Moosa joined the Mule IDE project. And now Mule IDE 1.4.3 is out, with none of my doing whatsoever. Congratulations, I'm looking forward to seeing what's coming next!

But at the same time, I can't help feeling that it's a little bit like sending a child off to school...
