Staying the Course - GlassFish v2.1.1 p7 now, GlassFish 3.1 M4 soon
[IMG]http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/resource/Charybdis-140_118px.jpg[/IMG] [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August"]August[/URL] is normally a slow month in (most of) the northern hemisphere, but this year it is proving to be anything but that for the [URL="http://glassfish.org"]GlassFish[/URL] team. Some events were atypical but planned for ([URL="http://www.oracle.com/us/javaonedevelop/index.html"]JavaOne 2010[/URL] not being in July, [URL="http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/entry/the_big_merge_is_on"]the big merge[/URL], the target [URL="http://wikis.sun.com/display/glassfish/GlassFishV3Schedule"]schedules for GlassFish 3.1[/URL]), while some others were [URL="http://blogs.sun.com/theaquarium/entry/google_and_oracle1"]unexpected[/URL]. Sometimes it has felt like we are going between [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charybdis"]Charybdis[/URL] and [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scylla"]Scylla[/URL] and we could use some [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hera"]help[/URL]...
Despite all these distractions, the releases continue for the GlassFish 2 and GlassFish 3 families.
On the GlassFish v2 family, we continue to deliver patch releases for our commercial customers. The latest one is Patch 7 for GlassFish 2.1.1; as with previous patches, it is also Patch 13 for GlassFish 2.1 and Patch 19 for SJS AS 9.1 U2 (GF v2 U2). The patch addresses 51 new defects; cumulative, 190 bug fixes since GlassFish 2.1.1.
