I'm happy to say that Seam 2.1.1 is one step closer to being done. We've just released Seam 2.1.1.CR1, so please take a look and let us know what you think. CR1 is largely a bug-fix release, with a number of notable performance improvements, especially around hot deploy. We've added support for PDF forms to the iText integration, and there's preliminary support for OpenID, but you'll have to wait for CR2 for the example and docs. Seam-gen now generates IntelliJ IDEA projects. And, I should also point out that we've changed a few of the URLs on examples to match up better with the example names.
The 2.1 GA release was just a week ago, but a few minor issues slipped through the cracks, mostly around seam-gen. We've put together an SP1 release to address the problems. If you are using 2.1 already, I'd recommend grabbing 2.1 even if you aren't experiencing any of the issues.
We've released Seam 2.0.3.CR1. This is a relatively small release focussed on fixing up a few small issues with Seam 2.0, making our stable Seam 2.0 branch even better. The most significant change is an upgrade of Facelets for better JBoss 5 compatibility, but there are a handful of other changes that existing Seam users should look over. Please give the release a spin and give us feedback if you run into any issues.
Seam 2.0.2.CR2 is now out. This release fixes almost all the known issues with CR1 release, with most of the changes related to minor problems with the examples and the documentation. The laundry list for the GA release is quite small, so I expect we'll have it out shortly. However, the exact timing depends on what kind of feedback we get from the Seam community. If you want to help us get it out faster, give 2.0.2.CR2 a test run and report back if you encounter anything out of the ordinary.
The Seam team is back from the holidays, and we're quite happy to be able to say that the 2.0.1.CR2 Seam release is out. We've only got a couple of minor housekeeping (docs) issues to address, so unless we see some big bugs in the next few days, I think we can expect to see a GA release early next week.
You may have thought we'd be taking it easy after our big Seam 2.0 release a few weeks ago, but we've been hard at work getting ready for 2.0.1. It's almost ready, so we're releasing CR1 today. (downloadrelease notesdocs)
We've released Seam 2.0.0 GA to the world. (downloads and docs for the impatient) Seam 2 is a big release. We'll be talking a lot about the new features over the coming days and weeks. To get you started, I wrote up my list of the top 10 things you should know about Seam 2.
I'm happy to announce that we've just released Seam 2.0.0.CR3. (download it) As you can see from the release notes, we've been rather busy the last few weeks. Most of the changes since CR2 are documentation and test related, but we've also been busy fixing bugs, upgrading dependencies and making sure that JBossTools and Seam 2.0 work together.
