Grizzly 2.2 is here, WebSocket inside! (& more)

As you may have heard the WebSocket protocol, often described as one of the key elements of HTML 5, has finally been blessed (check out RFC 6455).

Well, it only took Grizzly 10 days or so to implement this final specification and ship Grizzly 2.2 (granted it's been keeping up with all the interim releases).

In other important addition to this release, the Grizzly Async HTTP Client will soon hit 1.7.0 and also offer WebSocket support! Non-Blocking Sendfile Support and write I/O Thottling as a protection against async write queue overloading are also new in this release.

This version of Grizzly will be integrated into GlassFish 4.0 (and may already be in the trunk by the time you read this), while 3.1.2 will ship with 1.9.42 (or later), both do offer support for RFC 6455.

How many more server-side implementations out there supporting the WebSocket protocol?
