    Congrats, JDev EA was already much more stable than the EA a year ago so this should be even better.
    Just a small usability comment, in light of the fact that most of our new developers seem to find the workspace-project model a bit confusing. It now happened twice to me, that checking out a second module from CVS results in the two being merged (the latter into the former). This is not visible in JDev's navigator pane so it is only when diving into the filesystem this problem becomes apparent - usually after a commit on the whole thing!
    I can only guess the idea is to be able to merge two projects into one workspace, by setting the checkout root dynamically according to which workspace node in the navigator is currently selected. This is a non-issue when you remember to mark the "Applications" root node prior to checkout, or when you remember to edit the checkout path in the dialog… but since most probably succumb to an automated “Next-Next-Ok” procedure, mistakes easily happen. Perhaps a simple warning could be in place, when JDev sees the user is trying to check out a workspace into an existing one?

    ...and I almost forgot. The problem could also be alleviated by adding Versioning item to the context-sensitive popup on the Applications node. If such an option existed, I would personally check out this way rather than going up in the menu (after hopefully having remembered to mark the Applications node).
    Just my two cents.

    So where is the mac version?

    You can actually use the base version on your Mac. One of our guys is working on creating the dmg packaging now and hopefully we'll have it out soon as well.
