A Tale of Two GlassFish Releases: 2.1.1 p8 and 3.1 MS6
By pelegri on Oct 29, 2010
The two most recent releases show how GlassFish provides support and add new features.
GlassFish 2.1.1 patch 8 is the most recent patch in the GlassFish 2 family. This commercial release fixes 17 new defects. The last 8 patches collectively fix 207 defects since the last public and free release, GlassFish 2.1.1. GlassFish 2.1.1 was also GlassFish 2.1 patch 6, including 251 fixes since the previous public and free release, GlassFish 2 U2.
These patch releases reflect the core of the GlassFish commercial support from Oracle. The other extreme are the milestone releases in GlassFish 3.1: we just released GlassFish 3.1 MS6 (or build 26, see mapping), which is a feature-complete version of GlassFish 3.1, and includes all our clustering support.
And when we release (the free and public) GlassFish 3.1 later in the year it will fit within the Overall GlassFish 3 Release Family and we will start planning patch releases after it.
