The Seam team is happy to report that Seam 2.2.0.CR1 is now out. This release gives us a chance to upgrade Seam to the latest versions of a few libraries that are core to Seam. These changes were big enough to warrant bumping minor version numbers.
The largest is a bump to the entire Hibernate family of APIs - core 3.3.1, tools 3.2.4, entitymanager 3.4.0, annotations 3.4.0 and search 3.1.1. We've also moved our Drools support from Drools 4 to Drools 5. If the great new features of Drools 5 weren't enough, we've added a few new features to the drools integration: decision table support, Seam components as consequence exception handlers and Seam components as Drools event listeners.
Finally, we've put in some serious work towards making Seam work better for applications that deploy over multiple WAR files. If that's something you've been having issues with, we definitely recommend that you give Seam 2.2 a try.
