Max and I will be at JavaPolis next week. I don't know what Max is doing there but I will talk about Hibernate Search and JSR-303 Bean Validation, both talks on Thursday the 13th. Speaking of JSR-303, I have done a quick interview with Mark Newton on the topic: in a nutshell, it's shaping well and we hope to have a draft out in a month or so for you to review :)
Max should have some exciting news on the tooling side for Seam, JSF and Hibernate.
Speaking of Seam, Pete will be there as well for a university around JBoss Seam
Come by the booth, I'm sure we will have some beers for you.
