Virgo kernel checked in and ready for use

The Virgo kernel was checked in to Eclipse git earlier today and is ready for you to take it for a spin.

No, this isn't the Virgo kernel - it's a 5 Mb hard disk from 1956 which weighed over a ton. The Virgo kernel zip file would have needed a couple of tons of hard disk for storage. Thank goodness times have moved on.

IntelliJ IDEA Support for dm Server

IntelliJ just announced support for dm Server. Although I haven't tried using the support, it appears to be at a reasonable level of function and only a little behind the SpringSource Tools Suite (as far as dm Server support is concerned) with plans to fill the gap. IntelliJ haven't mentioned Virgo yet, but I'm hopeful that the Eclipse (RT) branding won't put them off.

This, in my opinion, is a sign of a healthy runtime: multiple vendors competing on tooling. I'd like to see the same on management tooling which could be implemented relatively easily layer to dm Server's JMX interface.
