  Major new features:

  - EJB 3.1 Singleton Support
  - EJB Constructor Injection
  - Spring Integration
  - Multicast Client-Server Discovery

  Significant Improvements:

  - EAR-style classpath application discovery groups individual  
modules as an EAR allowing sharing of persistence units and improved  
connector and custom MDB deployment.

  - Detection of EclipseLink, TopLink, and Hibernate as JPA providers  
to automatically adds the right persistence unit property to for  
wiring in the OpenEJB TransactionManager.

  - System Property and InitialContext property overriding now applies  
to persistence-unit properties and logging levels.

  - Login/logout now possible in an embedded scenario via  
InitialContext params and initialContext.close() respectively.

  - Complete overhaul of all client/server connection management  
dramatically increases performance.

  - Several new checks added to Application Validation ruleset, some  
reworked to give even more details.
