Scott, take a look at the mailreader and blank apps. You can also read
through the struts2-core pom (annotated and easier to read here -,
that points to 2.1.8, they haven't indexed yet, but there is
no differences in dependencies).

If you just want to cut to the chase, the "essentials" would be -

xwork-core 2.1.6
freemarker 2.3.15
ognl 2.7.3
