We would like to thank the community for the valuable input we received from test driving the first candidate release. It helped a lot to stabilize the new feature set, that includes:
- The latest version of JBoss EJB3 that is now bundled by default in the .zip distro (no separate installation step).
- The JBoss Web container, based on apache tomcat that includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) and optional native plug-ins for truly stellar performance.
- JBoss Transactions, that is now the default transaction manager for JBossAS.
- Latest versions of Hibernate/JBossWS/JGroups/JBossCache.
- and more...
Don't forget to drop in by the JBoss User Forums to tell us what you think.
