Congratulations to Petar Tachiev on the release of Cactus 1.8. This is the first release of Cactus in over 3 years. Thanks to Petar for taking over as project lead and getting a new release out the door. This release appears to cover mostly bug fixes and Cargo integration, which allows support of more containers.
He's also updated the build so that both Cactus and its web site are built using Maven.
See the Cactus Site for details.
If you've been following JSFUnit, you know that it is built on Cactus, so I'm very happy to see that project come back to life.
Life goes on for JSFUnit as well. The JSFUnit forum has been very popular lately and folks have been anxious to get their hands on a new release. So I'm planning a second beta release for next week. This will be mostly bug fixes, but it will include some new features as well.
Unfortunately, major new features like Seam support will have to wait for 1.0 final. We've made some progress, but it's not ready for prime time. Also, if you have a new feature that you really need in JSFUnit, make it known in the forum thread here. I'll do my best to make sure that new features are community-driven.
So long, and thanks for all the fish,
