Hi all,

The CR 2 has been released:

* Announcement:
* Spec: http://beanvalidation.org/2.0/spec/2.0.0.cr2/
* Full Diff: http://beanvalidation.org/2.0/spec/2.0.0.cr2/diff/diff-to-1.1/

As announced earlier, the FAB submission is due early next week.
Please let me know if you have any further comments or remarks. Does
anyone see anything which should be addressed before doing the
submission? If nothing comes up, I'll push the button on Tuesday.

> After last week's Proposed Final Draft, we are almost there for the

> I'd like to do a CR 2 release of the spec tomorrow, which is about
> adding some clarifications, polishing comments, formatting and things
> like that. You can find the complete list of issues here:
> https://hibernate.atlassian.net/issues/?jql=project%20%3D%20BVAL%20AND%20fixVersion%20%3D%202.0.0.CR2%20ORDER%20BY%20status%20DESC
> During reviews we've also noticed a small set of things that mandated
> fixes to the API. These are:
> * BVAL-569 [1] - "Remove TYPE from targets of @ConvertGroup for
> consistency with @Valid" - @ConvertGroup was accidentally allowed to
> be given on type definitions, too (unlike @Valid which it always must
> accompany). This has been corrected by removing TYPE from the set of
> supported targets; the change is strictly binary and source
> compatible, as a) annotation targets are only checked at compile time
> but not runtime and b) the newly introduced target of TYPE_USE also
> allows the annotation to be given on type definitions; so it's a mere
> cosmetic change
> * BVAL-689 [2] - "Make @ConvertGroup#from() default to Default.class"
> - this simplifies group conversions in the common case where the
> default group is converted
> * BVAL-674 [3] - "Rename ConstraintDescriptor#validateUnwrappedValue()
> into getValueUnwrapping()" - the method name sounded like a "command"
> before, whereas the new name makes clear it's a "query" kind of
> method; also the members of the returned enum have been adapted to be
> in sync with the corresponding Unwrapping payload type names; also
> there's a new method ConstraintDescriptor#unwrap(Class), our common
> loophole allowing providers to add additional functionality; this
> eases exploration of such features and future standardization
> Another interesting change is this:
> * BVAL-613 [4] - Add an Automatic-Module-Name entry to the JAR
> manifest; fixing the module name to "java.validation" as recommended
> in the spec appendix when using the reference API JAR as an automatic
> module on JPMS
> With the CR 2, I consider the spec as feature complete and am only
> expecting small changes like typo fixes and the like between CR 2 and
> CR 3, the version to be submitted for the Final Approval Ballot. We
> got one more week for that, i.e. I'll submit to the FAB on July 11th.
> Please use this remaining time for reviewing and pointing out any
> remaining glitches (I hope there are none of course :).
