Subject Re: Frequency of Tomcat version updates in TomEE ?
Date Mon, 16 Jul 2012 19:51:18 GMT

we have no official position regarding it from what i know but here two
1) if you look last update of tomcat or security update (i think of cxf) it
took < 2 days for the snapshot (we are already on tomcat 7.0.29)
2) regarding releases we are working on the 1.1.0 and then we'll refactor
our trunk to ease releases so it should be more frequent
3) a lot of companies use TomEE and are concerned by security updates
(including committer companies) so updates will be done
