After Google ended its development of Google Wave it was thought to be the end of the project. But thanks to Apache it looks like Google Wave is not quite as finished as we though and maybe on the way back.
First released back in 2009 Google Wave was marketed as the email killer application and promising a new way of communication. But unfortunately the wave fizzled out and Google then released the code as open source and released Wave as Wave in a Box.
Now the Google Wave project has resurfaced in a new proposal to the Apache Software Foundation.
Firstly Wave’s code-base from Google will need to be added to the ASF’s infrastructure, to get Wave back to a state where development can be continued.
However Apache Wave is still currently in the proposal stage and Apache have yet to full commit to the project. But lets hope that Google Wave does get another gasp at life with the help of Apache.
