As you may know, I've been working very closely with the other stake holders in JSF (e.g. Sun, Oracle, Apache) on JSF 2. I just wanted to pull together a few recents threads to give you an update.

First, Ed Burns (the specification lead) posted on the status - not long to go now before the proposed final draft.

Second, Stan Silvert just blogged about using JSF2 in JBoss AS 5. Basically, you just need to replace the existing jsf-api.jar and jsf-impl.jar (get them from here) in $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/jbossweb.sar/jsf-libs - a really easy way to try out the new JSF!

Enjoy!
