Subject Re: Need stable version scheme for TomEE and link to archived releases

Romain:

Good to know that older version still exist, but this is only part of my
points, which again are:
 - How about a well defined version scheme for TomEE ?
 - Can links to older versions & archives be added to TomEE download page?

Thanks,
Alex
