Congrats guys.

Quick question, you are on a frenetic release cycle, 6 releases in 3 months.
How compatible is the latest version with, let's say 2.1.1 ? 
I'm just curious to know if that can hurt some users.

Again, congrats.

  *JBoss Forge 2.5.0.Final* is now available!

The Forge Team is proud to announce that JBoss Forge 2.5.0.Final is now 
available! This is the best release so far.

  What's new and noteworthy?

  * *Performance*: We have introduced more performance enhancements in
    the Furnace runtime, so the shell and other features should feel
    quite a bit snappier. Try it out and tell us your thoughts!
  * *Templates addon refactoring*: We refactored the templates addon
    with a cleaner and leaner API, check it out!
  * *Component Upgrades*: We've upgraded to Weld 2.0.5.Final, Aesh 0.53
    and Roaster 2.3.0.Final. More stability and new features available

And that's not all! Check out the issues below for more info.
