The wheels managed to stay on the cart after a couple weeks in Beta so it's time to cut 0.5.0 Final. Key features for this release include a mammoth tooling upgrade with a visual application editor, support for declarative security policy, and a bunch of new gateway bindings. All told, there were 139 JIRAs resolved as part of this release, which I think makes it our biggest in the history of the project. Maven artifacts have been deployed, bits are up on the downloads page, and the documentation has been updated.
All the juicy details can be found in the SwitchYard 0.5 Release Overview, which contains a list of all the new features with pointers to examples, documentation, and such. Take a look and see what it's like to live large with SwitchYard.
