A great holiday gift, indeed!
A very quick note to thank and congratulate everybody on this accomplishment. It put a
to something that felt like a never ending refactoring effort and for once we can see the
light at the end of the tunnel.
A big lesson for me has been that we definitely need to work on improving the relationship
of AS with all the satellite jboss projects. The jboss projects need to have a person
looking into integration and testing of their project in AS. They should take a more
and especially pro-active role in the AS development, participate in AS calls, testsuite
fixing and monitoring. Otherwise, it just doesn't scale out and we end up wasting so
energy for doing the obvious.
So thanks again, especially to those that lost their sleep for the last couple of weeks.
rest and enjoy your holidays, because coming back on January 2nd we have a lot of work to
do. The JIRA is full of CR1 issues and there are only 5 working weeks before JBW.

This is the last Beta release of the *JBoss 5.0.x* series for the *Java
EE™* 5 codebase! This release completes a big round of refactorings
related to the
transformation of JBossAS into a pure POJO-based server. There should be
no API changes from this point on as we move closer to a final release.
JBoss 5 is the next generation of the JBoss Application Server build on
top of the new JBoss Microcontainer. The JBoss Microcontainer is a
for managing POJOs, their deployment, configuration and lifecycle. It is
a standalone project that replaces the famous JBoss JMX Microkernel of
and 4.x JBoss series. The Microcontainer integrates nicely with the
JBoss framework for Aspect Oriented Programming, JBoss AOP.
Support for JMX in JBoss 5 remains strong and MBean services written
against the old Microkernel are expected to work.
