One year ago Kettle (http://kettle.pentaho.org) was open sourced under the LGPL license. I never ever anticipated that the consequences of doing that would be as “big” as they have been. Here are a few numbers to beat in the year to come:

1 RAD week at Pentaho (Orlando)
3 developer summits at Pentaho (Orlando)
5 releases (2.2.0, 2.2.1, 2.2.2, 2.3.0 & 2.3.1)
53 team members
76 (registered) feature requests implemented
158 posters:

363 (registered) bugs fixed
4.781 forum posts in 1257 threads.

87.064 new lines of code
+100.000 downloadsThis is the perfect opertunity to send out a big thank you to all the people that downloaded Kettle and an even bigger thank you to all the folks that supported Kettle with comments, bug reports, source code, patches & documentation! A big thank you also goes to all the companies that supported Kettle along the way by buying support contracts, filing feature requests with use-cases, providing us with new ideas, etc.
The numbers above show that Kettle development is going strong and is supported by a really nice community. (We have almost no trolling or flamebaits) Kettle is becoming better every day because of that and the new 2.4.0 release is shaping up to be a really nice release indeed.
It’s been an honour to be part of this wonderful open source story! Let’s take it to the next level in the coming year: there is nothing we can’t do in the ETL space…
