HornetQ 2.3.0.CR2 - Pre Final now

This is it! We just release HornetQ 2.3.0.CR2 which we intend to be our last Candidate Release before 2.3.0.Final

We are already in code freeze mode, meaning we are only committing very minor things like release scripts or other minor changes.

This is a big deal for us, we have been working on this release for a while, which mainly includes replication with active sync (meaning you can add a backup to a node and it will copy the live data to the backup side).

Please give it a try, and we will work with anyone who finds an issue before final.

HornetQ 2.3.0.CR1

HornetQ 2.3.0.CR1 has just been released

There are several bug fixes on this release and hopefully should be the pre cursor to 2.3.0.Final very shortly.

Replication now seems to be pretty stable, thanks to all who have tested it and help improve it, please let us know your experiences either via the user forum or our IRC channel and we will work hard to get Final out as soon as we can.
