Google Wave Turns Apache Wave

It’s official! Google Wave is now Apache Wave. Apache has now accepted that proposal, and Google is preparing for a few changes. Can Apache re-live Google Wave this time?

Google Wave was released to the public in 2009. Unfortunately, the project saw a lackluster adoption. The Wave development was officially stopped in August, and became an open-source code last September. Then a couple of weeks ago, Google made a proposal to the Apache Software Foundation to take Google Wave. According to the proposal, Google aims to migrate Wave’s code base to Apache’s infrastructure. With that, they are crossing their fingers that Google Wave will return to an active development state. Google also noted that the project still had some notable users like the US Navy. Apache has accepted the proposal, and Google is preparing for some changes.

Can Apache Software Foundation give Google Wave a new life? Share your insights by leaving a comment.
