 ## Overview
-JPA 2.0 is currently being defined by the Java Community Process under [JSR-317](
-.  The most recent public draft is dated 03/13/2009.  Members of the Apache
-OpenJPA project continue to monitor and actively participate in JSR-317. 
-OpenJPA has recently branched off its 1.x efforts and is targeting its next
-release, OpenJPA 2.0, to in addition to providing new features, be fully
-spec compliant with JPA 2.0.  While the JPA 2.0 spec is still in the review
-process, the OpenJPA project will begin implementing JPA 2.0 capabilities
-as defined by the draft specification.	This will help to ensure a timely
-delivery of JPA 2.0 functionality in addition to providing experience-based
-feedback to the JPA committee.

+## JPA 2.1 Highlights
+The latest JPA 2.1 specification includes many updates to JPA,
 from minor updates to major functional enhancements.  Some of these updates
 and enhancements include:
-* Collections of embeddables and basic types
-* Derived Identity support
-* Relationship support within embeddables
-* Enhancements to persistent map collection support
-* Standard properties for query timeout and persistence configuration
-* Lock mode configuration on entity manager and query
-* Cache interface to access L2 cache
-* Criteria API for programmatic query definition
-* Many JPQL enhancements
+*  Formal Stored Procedure support
+*  SynchronizationType to control when to enlist with transaction
+*  CDI support for Entity Listeners
+*  Type Conversions (similar to OpenJPA's Externalizer)
+*  Further explanation of how to return managed and unmanaged data from NativeQueries
+*  JPQL updates
+*  Support for TREAT (downcasting)
+*  Criteria API refactoring (hopefully just internal impacts)
+*  Allow use of packaged scripts:  ddl-create-script, ddl-drop-script, ddl-load-script
+*  Schema generation (similar to OpenJPA's capability)
+*  Annotation updates:  @Converter, @ForeignKey, @Index
