Subject: [EXTERNAL] - Re: [birt-dev] Next BIRT Release?
Hello, Mike, Alexander and community,
Yes - we are at Orienteer pretty interested in having/making BIRT back alive.
We have Orienteer module which allows to embed BIRT reports as a widget into business applications.

I'm new to BIRT development and I'm wondering if there are plans for when the next BIRT release will be published. AFAIK BIRT did not participate in the last Eclipse SimRels (2018-09 and 2018-12). Is this correct? Are there any obstacles
that have to be taken until a new BIRT release can be published? I'm entirely new to the Eclipse community so maybe someone can light me up on what steps are necessary for a Release and how I can help.
A goal would be to have a BIRT release with the next Eclipse SimRel (2019-03), wouldn't it?
For its entire history, the Eclipse BIRT project has been mostly backed by Actuate, which was acquired by OpenText a few years back. It seems that the project is not very active at the moment, and we're very interested in seeing it rebooted by community
parties like yourself. As someone who is new to the Eclipse community, we would be happy to provide you with advice and pointers on how to engage.
Is there anyone else out there besides Alexander who are interested in reinvigorating BIRT?
