Not only have we delivered the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1.0 Alpha last week (FAQ), but we have now released the JBoss Developer Studio 7 Alpha 1 based on Eclipse Kepler as well the Fuse technology based on Apache Active-MQ and Apache Camel. That is an amazing amount of enterprise-class middleware hitting the community!
Integration - JBoss Fuse Beta - you can download the new beta version, watch several videos and explore the demo source code.
Tools - JBDS 7 Alpha - Updated to support JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 Alpha 1 - please download both and give it a try. You can simply unzip the application server into the "runtimes" directory of JBDS and upon restart, it will automatically detect that you have a new app server and ask if you wish to configure it.
