The list of features planned for GlassFish 3.1.2 is shaping up nicely as reflected on the Wiki. This includes three types of improvements: new features, updated components and bugs fixes.
My favorite new features include DCOM node support (alternative to SSH on windows), and GMS non-multicast support. The list of updated components is also a top choice but seeing the issues you reported or the ones you care most about should be on top of your list, so make sure you vote and make it happen.
To some people who like entirely new shiny products, this may sound like a boring release. To others the "dot-dot" releases are the exciting ones given the level of stability that they reach which usually means safer large-scale deployments. Finally, remember, these are plans for GlassFish Open Source Edition and things can change (if they do, we'll keep you posted, as always).
