While the individual Seam module versions haven't changed for this release, the distribution now includes Seam Forge, the totally new, engineered from the ground up shiny successor to seam-gen.

Forge is a rapid application development tool for building Java EE applications. It features an extensible plugin system, powerful command-link features, incremental project enhancement and much much more.

Follow the getting started steps in the Forge reference documentation to find out how easy it is to create a new Java EE project with Forge.

The Seam 3.0 CR2 release also includes an updated version of the Seam Booking example (what would a Seam release be without it?). Many thanks goes to José Freitas for spending the time to get this example working, and for giving it a refreshing new look.

With the CR2 release out of the way, the Seam team will now be working hard to prepare for the 3.0 Final release, which can be expected by the end of this month. If you discover any issues while using the CR2 release, please let us know by reporting it in JIRA.
