Nightly Builds of GlassFish 3.0.1 and 3.1

This week was the kickoff for GlassFish v3.1 and the release is looking very good: it will keep all the good things in v3 (JavaEE6, modularity, OSGi, open source) and will add Clustering and HA.  Add interop and synergy with Oracle Middleware Products (see Roadmap) and the Oracle machinery (sales / accounts) and I think 3.1 will have a very strong impact in the industry. So...

If you like to live on the bleeding edge and want to help us sharpen the next GlassFish releases, check out 3.0.1 promoted & 3.1 nightly (via @alexismp)

Sorry, but what does it mean 'promoted'?

Promoted are builds that have passed a basic set of tests. They happen roughly weekly.

The update from GlassFish v3 to the GlassFish v3.1 will be available through the Update Center?

Excellent news... is clustering support in the nightly now or will it be added later?

@Sean - I believe a detailed schedule is not yet public, although some areas do have initial estimates [1]. See [2] for arch doc. And [3] is the main page for 3.1.

@Cravo - Sorry, officially we can't say much more than what's in the Roadmap presentation at http://glassfish.org/roadmap, i.e. this year, and that it will go out before 3.1.
We will post here as soon as it is available.

@Gustavo - The current thinking for the GlassFish OSE (\*) is that for the 3.1 installer we will support side-by-side upgrade and that we would support 3 to 3.1 via the Update Center.

(\*) that would be the GlassFish Server Open Source Edition. The Oracle GlassFish Server distro directly leverages that distribution, but, in this and other community blogs, we follow the Oracle policy and, unless otherwise indicated, we talk about the Open Source distribution.
