Late Friday I cut the first CR for Naga - 3.0.0.CR1 is now in our Maven2 repo and on jboss.org for you to download.
There are a host of new features, fixed bugs and performance tweaks in CR1 - check out the release notes on JIRA for the details.
Finally, I would like to add that this is not strictly a CR in that I can't release this as a GA. The documentation - FAQs, user guide and tutorial - still needs to be brought up to date with all the new features in Naga, but apart from that, the code is ready for the prime time. Pending feedback, bug reports, and the like, of course.
So, please treat this release as something close to prodution quality and feed back as much as you can on the user forums - this is really important to us. What I am particularly interested to hear are, in addition to comments on new features:
- Performance under load
- Performance in large clusters
- Backward compatibility against code written for JBC 2.x
