For those that are interested in what's happening with Seam Security, I've written an article describing the improvements to the security API in Seam 2.1.0. You can read the full article here, but to summarise, it covers the following features:
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.
