I am happy to announce the 5.1.0.CR1 release of the JBoss Application Server! This is the first AS release to include Embedded JOPR, our new web-based administration console. We are hoping to get as much feedback as possible before releasing the final 5.1.0, so please try it out and tell us what you think.
Also included in this release is the new 1.0.0.PREVIEW release of Web Beans, a key technology that greatly simplifies EE web development. This release is the first feature complete implementation of the public draft. Check out Pete's blog for more info.
For those that were missing the farming clustering service, it is now back as of this release. See the wiki page on the relevant changes.
As always, many other updates too numerous to mention were made. To see the full list, check out the detailed release notes.
Download 5.1.0.CR1 here, and have a great open source day!
