With the release of gLite 3.0 EGEE reached the important milestone to converge to a unique middleware stack. gLite 3.0 is the merge of the LCG middleware (LCG 2.7.0) that was deployed on the production infrastructure and of the EGEE middleware (gLite 1.5) developed in the first phase of the project. This was done following the new software process that foresees the Technical Coordination Group as the driving body, the new integration and certification process controlled by the SA3 activity and the use of the tools provided by the ETICS project. In this presentation an overview of the gLite 3.0 middleware and of the new software process is given. Furthermore the future development plans and the collaborations with other projects are discussed.
