Dear Struts Community,

native support for Struts 1.1. Thanks to all of you who participated in our
open beta!

The standard edition, which covers web (JSP/Servlets) and Struts
development, is FREE! You may download it here:

The new user manual is available here (4.5 MB). It includes information on
how to get started with the Struts support.
