- Cluster Enhancements: More flexible framework (with respect to what is used as datasource to hold clustered state), a more useful and feature rich buddy groups setup
- Resource Adaptors: JSR 309 finally, a easy to customize "example" JDBC/Datasource RA, same for a Web Services Client RA, and an alternative Http Server RA that does not relies on HTTP Servlets
- Service Enablers: continue the work started by the XDM Client, providing ready to integrate enablers for SLEE applications
- Web Console 3.x: still a bit undefined at this point, but very high chances that we will have the "old" web console back, and leave Jopr/JBoss ON just for monitoring
We have set the first Beta version for the end of January, and set all the new stuff for such release, but note that it is expected some to miss the train and jump in later releases, the task list is so big. Still, our compromise is that in the middle of the year we will have the first FINAL release, and such release will have everything production quality and carrier grade.
Finally, if you have been wanting to contribute but not able to understand how, this time is a great opportunity to step in, it's specially easy to contribute on components such as the new resource adaptors and enablers.
All feedback is welcome so please let us know what's in your mind.
