I'm pleased to say that CDI 1.1 is available and included in Java EE 7. If you want to learn more, read on, and join a webcast 12th June about all the technologies in Java EE 7. Both webcasts are followed by a Q&A session, when CDI experts will be on hand to answer your questions. The webcast is at [9 am PT / 12 pm ET / 5 pm London] or [9 pm PT / 12 am ET (Thursday) / 2 pm Sydney (Thursday)]
I'm pleased to announce the release of PicketLink 2.5.0.Beta3. This release is actually the successor to 3.0.0.Beta2 - we've changed the version number to help avoid confusion going forward, if you want the nitty gritty details about this decision then you can find out more below.
I'm very pleased to announce the first alpha release of PicketLink 3.0. This release is the culmination of many months of effort by the JBoss Security team, with many contributions made from other project teams at JBoss and members of the community. I'd like to thank everyone involved with this release, from those who participated in the many design discussions on the security mailing list over the last few months, to those who contributed code and have started integrating PicketLink into their own projects.
Last week the JCP posted the CDI 1.1 public review draft. This draft continues to incrementally improve the 1.0 spec. We haven't added any major new features, instead we're concentrating on honing 1.0 :-)
I’m very happy to announce the details for the first phase of our Seam.Next plan. I’d like to thank everyone for waiting patiently while we worked on this, and for providing feedback either directly via e-mail or IRC, or through the Seam forums. I’d also like to thank the module leads, key community members and other people that were involved in helping to shape this plan, it was very much a collaborative effort and we are very excited about the ideas and goals that were discussed and direction going forward.
It took a while to release it (due to other work that needed to be completed first), and it took me a couple of weeks to announce it (i.e. until now), but my bit of news for today is this: the first release of our CDI Spring bridge, aka Seam Spring 3.1.0.Alpha1 is out.
I've just submitted an early draft of the Contexts and Dependency Injection 1.1 (CDI, JSR-346) to the JCP. We (the CDI community) have completed around a third of the features we want to see in CDI 1.1, so wanted to post an early draft to get some wider feedback. Whilst the JCP sort out the paperwork, you can read the draft on jboss.org :-)
