The recent JXTA Town Hall was informative as usual. For me, yet another <teaser>light</teaser> went off. One thing I'd like to hear more of is general P2P discussions, theories, applications complimented with JXTA implementations ..
JXTA 2.2-b (aka 03Q4) is upon us and normalizing out nicely. Those using previous JXTA releases are encouraged to try out JXTA 2.2 (cvs -r JXTA_2_2_STABLE) and for those new to JXTA, this is a great time to climb aboard.
