JBoss Announce Early Access for Developer Studio 5

JBoss have announced early access for JBoss Developer Studio 5. This version of Developer Studio is based on JBoss Tools 3.3, and focuses on separating out the SOA tooling. Therefore, JBoss Developer Studio 5 will not include the Teiid data virtualisation system, jbpm, drools, ESB and the Smooks framework by default. SOA Tooling will be available from a separate update site, or via an additional download, in the future. The Early Access program will commence in August 2010 and will be completed by the GA date of JBoss Developer Studio.
