According to its developers, a milestone release of the Apache Geronimo server is tagged in CVS and awaiting binary release by the ASF. But don't get too excited about it just yet--the release is for earlybirds and hackers.
I spoke with a couple of Geronimo's developers this morning, and I'm told the first version of the server (with all the pieces in place) is tagged in CVS and will soon be available for binary download. I'm also told the release notes caution users not to bet the farm on it in its early form. This will be a release for hackers, enthusiasts and 3rd party vendors who will be contributing major components and subsystems to it in the coming weeks and months.
I've been keeping up with its development since the project's inception, and it'll be great to finally have a relatively stable version to develop against. I encourage anyone interested in it to visit the project's site in the Apache incubator.
