1. Ample SDK gone Open-Source
As we promised at the Ajax Experience and SVG Open conferences, and later on announced in a blog post, Ample SDK is Open-Source project as of 1st November, 2009. You can now use it under GPL or MIT licenses. The simple reason why project had been closed-source for the first year is because the lead developer, Sergey Ilinsky, was bound by a contract with his previous employer.

We have started implementation of Charting technology. The scope of the project is to implement all major chart types, such as: Bar, Bubble, Doughnut, Funnel, Line, Pie, Radar and Map charts.
Another new project is XML/JSON-RPC APIs. Although most of the Client-Server communication can be managed with the help of XMLHttpRequest object, we've got several requests for specialized APIs.

We have set up JSUnit unit testing framework. New development will be accompanied with relevant unit testing commits, old code will get unit tests with the time.
