Weld 1.1.2 is Final

Weld 1.1.2 is Final! This version of the Weld JSR-299 reference implementation uses ThreadLocal cache in proxies to improve performance, and Definition/DeploymentExceptions thrown by an AnnotationModel are now wrapped by a ComputationException. It also fixes a list of bugs, including an AbstractContext creationLock deadlock, and NPE in ForwardingContextual.toString during session failover. A full list of the fixes is available at the Release Notes.

This version will be included in the upcoming JBossAS6.1 and the latest GlassFish.


Orion Switches to Rapid Release Cycle

Orion’s RC3 build of June 27, 2011, has now been declared as Orion 0.2 following a successful official release review. According to the announcement, the Orion project is now moving to a more rapid release cycle, and away from the annual Eclipse release pattern.

“While annual releases have worked very well for the Eclipse ecosystem, they are too slow for a web world where browsers and major components such as Dojo and JQuery ship new feature releases every few months,” reads the announcement. This release cycle will also allow Orion to keep pace with its dependent libraries and platforms.

A 0.3 release is planned for the end of October, 2011. Orion 0.2 can be downloaded now.
