I can't wait to start using Struts 2.0.  The only thing holding me back
is Struts 2.0 "default" use of Spring 1.x instead of the current Spring
2.0.   I know it is "supposed" to work with Spring 2.0 just fine, but
call me paranoid... I'll probably wait until Struts 2.0 uses Spring 2.0
by default.  I suspect many others are waiting for the same event.

I'm copying in the user list, in case others might be interested.

Struts 2.0 is very stable. It's the direct descendant of WebWork 2, and
we have dubbed the 2.0.x series the "compatiblity release". The bits
themselves are ready-to-go. We're just finishing-up on peripheral
concerns that don't affect the code itself.

In Struts 2.0, we won't be straying far from the path WebWork 2 has
already blazed. WW2 powers some of the greatest web applications on the
planet, including Confluence and Jive Forums. There's no arguing with

Though, since web development is *still* more work than it should be, I
am hoping that there will be significant changes in the future. But,
these changes would build on the solid base provided by Struts 2.0.
The Interceptor architecture is elegant and extensible, and I'm sure we
can take it whereever we want to go.

And, just because we make changes down the road, that doesn't mean other
people have to follow along. In the Struts 1 series, right now we are
shipping Struts 1.3.5. Meanwhile, I'd say that a majority of Struts
applications in production are running on Struts 1.1, which shipped in
2003. If someone has 1.1 (or 1.0) questions, there's still plenty of
people on the list ready to answer. How's that for stability? :)
