. . . We're experiencing a Nor'easter here in New England today. Rain, wind and cooler temperatures. Getting cooler after a fantastic year of seasonable weather in this area. Getting cooler also reminds me of the upcoming candidate release of JBoss Application Server 6 where we continue to provide cool stuff to the development community. I updated the 6.0.0.CR1 Executive Status this morning with what's planned for this week including the final component and bug fix freeze. The CR1 branch will be created at the end of the day on Wednesday, November 10 - 11:59 EST to be exact. This will give us time to get the release tested and promoted to the Download site in time for the Devoxx Conference next week in Belgium. We're not quite done yet. We have a few more cool features to finish up for the 6.0.0.Final release scheduled to be out by the end of the year. Stay Tuned.
