Just a quick update to let you know that the interest for JBoss AS 5 has been very strong during the past five weeks.
The combined downloads for our two jdk5/jdk6 distros as reported by sourceforge exceeded the 66k number, even thought the measured period included the Xmas holidays. At the same time the overall download traffic for JBoss AS in December peaked at 126,989 downloads, a number close to our all-time-high.
So things are moving pretty well and we mean to keep it that way! We are planning a bug fixing 5.0.1.GA release around the end of January to address some initial glitches so if you have any issues with AS5 or you've spotted any bugs or other annoyances, please make sure you report them in our AS5 user forum so we can prioritize the work accordingly.
Thanks for keeping the input flowing!
