+<h3>iBATIS 2.3.2 Promoted to General Availability</h3>
+<p>(Jun 30, 2008) The latest version of iBATIS has been promoted to GA.  This latest
version requires Java 5.  While it wasn't planned that way originally, we decided to take
the plunge 
+and start to "encourage" our users to upgrade their platforms (or at least become one more
reason to do so).  Sun will be discontinuing support for JDK 1.4 in about four months and

+most of the world has already moved to Java 5.  This also allows us to include built-in support
for enumerations and will better prepare you for iBATIS 3 when the time comes. </p>
+<p><b><a href="javadownloads.cgi">Get the 2.3.2 GA from the Java downloads
page now!</a></b></p>
+  
+<h3>iBATIS 2.3.2 Beta and German Docs</h3>
+<p>(Apr 22, 2008) I've released a small update which corrects a few logistical issues
with the 2.3.1 deploy.  It's a very minor release, but this will be the next GA version if
all goes well.  Thus 2.3.1 will never be GA, so get this one.  In addition to that, <b>Axel
Leucht</b> has contributed documentation in German.  So now all of my co-workers at
Arvato can read about iBATIS too!  ;-)   Thanks Axel.  
+
+<h3>Abator Renamed to iBATOR</h3>
+<p>(April 14, 2008) Due to a trade registration dispute, Abator is renamed to iBATOR.
 iBATOR is
+  currently a work in progress, but an initial code drop has been added to SVN.  See the

+  <a href="ibator.html">new iBATOR page</a> for more information.
+</p>
+
+<h3>iBATIS 2.3.1 Beta Available</h3>
+<p>(March 25, 2008) This is a long overdue maintenance release.  Fixes about 20 issues
and includes two significant improvements.  The first is the elimination of the Throttle.
 Originally included to artificially constrain threads, requests, and transactions to improve
performance on certain infrastructure.  It's not as much of an issue anymore and today the
Throttle caused more problems than it solved.  So bye-bye.  :-)  The only real impact you'll
see is that the maxSessions/maxTransactions/maxRequests no longer have any effect whatsoever.
 The other new change is built-in support for enums out of the box!  It's currently a Beta
release as per our process.  But if all goes well over the next week or two, we'll vote to
promote it to GA.  The best thing you can do is test it out for us!
+
+<h3>Abator 1.1 Available</h3>
+<p>(March 20, 2008) Abator version 1.1 is available.  This version has quite a few
minor enhancements,
+ two major enhancements (two new methods can be generated), and a few bug fixes.  Check it
out
+ <a href="abator.html">here</a>.
+
+<h3>It's quiet, too quiet!</h3>
+ <p>(March 10, 2008) Yes, we're alive.  I felt the need to update the homepage since
it's been a while(!).  All of the activity is on the mailing list these days,
+ and we haven't had a major release in a while.  That's all about to change.  The iBATIS
3.0 whiteboard has been up for a while and I think the ideas are sound.  We've had a lot
+ of great feedback and it's time to get to work.  iBATIS will have it's sixth birthday on
July 1st, 2008.  I'd like to suggest that we have a Beta 
+ version of iBATIS 3.0 out by that day.  Don't get too excited!  If you're currently using
2.0, you likely will be for a long time (heck, Larry still uses 1.x).  So, we'll 
+ continue to support it for a long time as well.  iBATIS 3.0 will be the biggest change to
the framework since the original concept.  While we're hoping to hold
+ true to some of the philosophies that have made iBATIS popular, it will look very different.

+<h3>iBATIS 3.0 Design Whiteboard</h3>
+ <p>(June 12, 2007) Next month, on July 1st iBATIS will officially be 5 years old,
and 2.0 alone
+   will be 3 years long in the tooth.  It's time, or perhaps overdue that we start designing
and
+   implementing the third version.  A lot has changed in 5 years, many best practices are
now simply
+   "old practices".  It's time to start from scratch.  Clinton's thoughts are up. This is
your chance to
+   influence the future direction of iBATIS.</p>

+<h3>Java Documentation in 7 languages including Japanese</h3>
+ <p>(June 12, 2007) Thanks to the contributions from our iBATIS community, we now have
+ documentation in 7 languages!  The most recent addition is Japanese, which joins Chinese,
+ Korean, Italian, Spanish, French and English.</p>

   <p>(April 6, 2007) The votes are in and both distributions are now tagged as GA!</p>
   <p>This release includes primarily several bug fixes and enhancements, documentation
have been updated.</p>

+<h3>Call for Official QA/Testing Team Members</h3>
+<p>(Jul 16, 2008) It seems that we have two very distinct types of teams using iBATIS:</p>
+<ul>
+  <li>Adventurous bleeding edge types</li>
+  <li>Conservative stable types</li>
+</ul>
+<p>It's hard to cater to both groups, so we've come up with a way that these groups
can help each other.  We've now provided access to 
+a <b>Parabuild continuous build server</b>.  The software and hosting is graciously
provided by <b>Viewtier Systems</b>.  This will
+allow the bleeding edge types to simply download the latest and greatest software, without
waiting for a formal release by us.</p>
+
+<p><b>In addition, we'd like to invite some of these teams or individuals to
become a formal QA/Testing group for iBATIS.</b></p>
+
+<p>This doesn't have to mean a lot of work! The best candidates are teams with excellent
test suites for their applications and those who use a lot of the different features
+of iBATIS in different or even odd ways.  We especially want to target groups who are using
<b>Spring</b> or other 3rd party software that integrates
+or works closely with iBATIS.  Alone we cannot test every single deployment, but together
we can.  This will allow us to learn about potential 
+integration problems sooner and allow us to get to General Availability status faster.  
+</p>
+<p>The continuous integration link and instructions can be found on the <a href="javadownloads.cgi">Java
Downloads</a> page.</p>
+<p><b>If you'd like to register yourself or your team as a formal tester</b>,
please send an email to the mailing list. Or to Clinton Begin if you'd 
+like to remain anonymous (you should know my email if you're on the list). Of course I recommend
you keep it wide open and identify yourselves both for 
+credit and so that you can share knowledge with other testers or teams</p>
+<p>Thanks to all!</p>
