Woodstock is changing in NetBeans 6.1 and James Branam is documenting the changes. There is a new Look to the Palette, and new Accordion and Bubble Help components. Expect more updates as we get closer to Woodstock 4.2 and NB6.1 final; see Roadmap.
You can download the Woodstock components manually from their Web Site, or you get them bundled with the NetBeans 6.x distributions, or you can download them automatically through the GlassFish Update Center.
Some additional Woodstock links include: the Live Preview site, the Documentation Hub and a list of the Browsers and Containers Supported. The latter include GlassFish - duh! - and also Tomcat 6, WebLogic 10 and JBoss 5.

The JSF Matrix keeps a table of JSF component libraries (although the comments suggest it needs updating) and Ryan just published a short note pointing to it. Pretty much all the component libraries work with GlassFish (we cheat a bit, most of the AppServers are using Mojarra, our JSF implementation).
Libraries explicitly mentioned by Ryan from those in the JSF Matrix include our own Woodstock, ICEfaces, Apache Trinidad, Apache Tomahawk, JBoss RichFaces and Blueprints. He also lists Mojarra Scales and Mannor'n Rock.
We would like to make it easier for you to run any of these libraries in your GlassFish application; let us know if you discover problems and we will collaborate with the library owners to fix them.

CNet reports that Intuit is working on Quicken Online and that its building it using JSF. The article reports that Quicken Online will go into limited beta mid-September; it will be interesting to check it out.
On another JSF front, Woodstock is making progress towards a new release and just pushing out Woodstock 4.1 b10. Their website also went through a small rev and it now Incorporates the GF Common Theme.
Added! Also check out this writeup on Creating Themes for Woodstock.

Woodstock 4.1 is making progress and it includes new components, including a BubbleHelp and an Accordion - the widget, not the Infamous Instrument. Dick gives an Update on the Build, including instructions for using on NetBeans 6.
I'm not sure how the latest Woodstock will make it into the runtime distributions (like the SDK and the GlassFish Update Center). I'll find out and will report back; in the meantime, enjoy!

Woodstock is an Open Source library of JSF components that provide modern presentations, including the use of AJAX. Woodstock is used in the new admin UI in GlassFish v2 M4 and it includes a pretty good set of components, as versions of it have been used inside Sun for a while.
The Woodstock project includes Documentation, Downloads and a Roadmap (the current release is 4.0). Live previews are available from the The Samples Page in the Web Developers Resource Center, or directly from the Project Preview Page. For example, here is the Tree Sample.
The Samples Page includes many other samples in addition to Woodstock, including Blueprints, jMaki, DynaFaces and Phobos. Check them out!
