Good news! We've just gone live with Seam 2.1.2.CR2. This release puts us right on the brink of a final release, with only documentation issues and a little more testing remaining on the work list. If you haven't already done so, now is the time to test the release with your Seam projects and report back issues, as the next scheduled stop on the Seam roadmap will be Seam 2.2.
Last week I recorded a couple of podcasts. The first one, with Nitin from DZone, gives a good overview of where we are going with Web Beans and Seam 3 - we talk about what JCDI is, how it fits into Seam 3, and the migration path.
We've been busy with the JSR-299 specification (Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE) over the last couple of weeks, preparing to submit a Proposed Final Draft in early June. At this point I would like to solicit feedback from the community on the recent changes, so I'm posting a current revision of the specification here.
