As you can see from JIRA, we are approaching the point to freeze
development for Seam 2.1 BETA1.
The only known blocking issue is any alterations needed to the Seam
deployment SPIs to enable us to delegate annotation scanning to the
underling runtime. Ales is working on an implementation for JBoss 5
this week, and he thinks he should know any changes needed by the end
of the week (the development freeze has been put back a few days to
allow for this).
Then the release will go out at the beginning of next week.
