Weld 2.3.0.Final has been just released! From now on, 2.3 is the current stable version of Weld and 2.2 is not actively developed anymore - i.e. no new features are added, only bugs will be fixed. Weld 2.3 will remain a CDI 1.2 implementation. We are incrementing the minor version due to several new features added. Weld 2.3 is also included in WildFly 10 application server.

Notable features and changes:

  • Java 6 support was dropped - Java 7 is the minimal requirement for building and running Weld 2.3

  • Weld 2.3 comes with a special mode for application development, the Probe development tool allows to inspect application CDI components at runtime

  • Weld SE Bootstrap API was enhanced in many ways - new features are mostly backported from Weld 3 development branch

  • Weld Servlet now supports Undertow web server

  • Revised delivery of @Initialized/@Destroyed events for @ApplicationScoped in an EAR (see also WELD-1821)

Weld 2.2.16.SP1

In addition, Weld 2.2.16.SP1 has been also released. It’s a bugfix release for 2.2 branch.
