The project will continue to operate the Apache way, building a highly manageable community with the most popular, simple, feature-rich API Gateway.”

“It was my pleasure to help ShenYu grow from a small personal project to a Top Level Project through the incubator at ASF,” said Willem Ning Jiang, ASF Board Member and Apache ShenYu Mentor. “I still remember the first time I met Yu Xiao four years ago to talk about the project, and congratulations again on ShenYu’s graduation.”
“The ShenYu community personified the Apache Way during the incubation process, allowing it to develop healthily and quickly,” said Jincheng Sun, Apache ShenYu Mentor. “In 12 months, ShenYu has created a fully functional API gateway product that is popular with users. The community will continue to embrace the Apache Way with an open mind, bringing global developers and users together to carefully craft each practical product capability and create the greatest create value for the common good.”
“Glad to see that ShenYu has become a Top Level Project of the ASF,” said Duo Zhang, Apache ShenYu Mentor. “The community has improved a lot during the incubation period, learning and following the Apache way. Becoming a TLP is not the end, but a beginning, as the community continues to provide a widely used, full-featured API gateway in the future.”

About the Apache Incubator
The Apache Incubator provides services to projects that wish to join the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). It helps incoming projects or “podlings” adopt the Apache style of governance and operation and directs them to ASF services so that they can become top-level ASF projects. The Incubator delegates some mentors for each podling to act as a liaison with the various ASF teams and facilitate the growth and operations of the podling. https://incubator.apache.org
