Proposal for CDI 1.1 Posted

Pete Muir has blogged that he has submitted the JSR proposal

control over which packages/classes are scanned in a bean archive,
and alignment with the current version of @Inject. A list of all
the issues the team plan to address, can be seen at the ‘New features proposed for CDI 1.1‘ document.
According to the blog post, most of the work will be done through
the CDI issue tracker and the cdi-dev@lists.jboss.org public mailing list.
