Hi all,

iBATIS 2.2.0 is released.  The website will be updated as soon as the Apache servers propogate the site changes. 

So that you don't have to wait, here's the "press release"...

------------------
This is probably the most significant iBATIS 2.x release in at least a year. If you haven't upgraded in a while, this would be the one to go for. This update includes 25 new minor features 15 bug fixes and 3 new major features including support for Oracle cursors, multiple result sets and private bean properties. This is also the first release that requires JDK 1.4 (as voted nearly a year ago).
------------------

The full changelog is below (as well as included with the distribution).  And so you don't have to wait for the download...

Cheers,

PS: A vote to move to GA will follow in a separate email.
