I've just published a release candidate for Weld 1.1.0, the reference implementation of JSR-299: Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE. It's based on the CDI 1.0 API. You can find direct download links at the bottom of this post or you can pull the artifacts from the JBoss Maven Repository.
I'm pleased to announce the availability of Seam Security 3.0.0 Alpha1. This release is a major rework of the
security features from Seam 2.x, so I apologise in advance for the epic release notes. First the important stuff:
There were a number of comments on twitter and blogs last week discussing Weld's performance and scalability, and I wanted to comment on the issues discussed and our work to resolve them. Upfront, let me say that we have been actively working on performance and scalability for a while now (previously more on memory usage, more recently on performance). Of course, we work primarily with JBoss AS, but also work closely with the GlassFish team; many of the improvements will be directly available as Weld is updated in GlassFish, and we'll continue to support the GlassFish team in any performance work they do on GlassFish that impacts on Weld.
Infinispan and Seam are doing it again. We're hosting a community social in the midst of Europe's premier Java conference, Devoxx (in Antwerp, Belgium). This year we'll be joined by Arquillian to keep things under control (you don't want to make Ike mad).
What with just getting back from vacation, I forgot to post that I will be speaking tomorrow (Thursday 10th) evening in Belgium on CDI, Java EE 6 and Arquillian as a guest of the Belgium JBoss User Group. More here.
Seam Faces - Version 3.0.0.Beta1 is released. Several bugfixes as well as several new features have been included. This new version requires Weld Version 1.0.1.Beta1 or later. (Meaning GlassFish 3.1 or JBoss AS 6 M5+)
