GlassFish v3 Preview Updated

ALT DESCR

It took a bit longer than anticipated, but we have updated the repositories behind GlassFish v3 Preview (STABLE from glassfish.sun.com). You are most likely to notice this through the see new SoftwareUpdate tool, but you might also see it through the GUI UpdateTool or the embedded UpdateTool, or do it manually via the CLI.

Full details in Alexis writeup and Abhijit's announcement.

The whole thing has been working very well for me in recent builds but this is software, so please let us know if you experience any issues.
