There's really not a lot more I can say to describe how happy I am that we've just released AS7.1 and it's fully EE6 certified! The entire team has worked flat out for months (years!) to achieve this and not only have they done it, but they've done it with style! I'm not going to say much more because there are a plethora of blog posts out there already telling you all about AS7.1 so you should go take a look for yourselves. All I will add is that this is the start of the final lap for the EAP 6 release, so it won't be long before we'll be offering a fully supported EE6 platform to our customers as well as the community. Just watch this space!


Oh and for those who didn't see Jason's original email announcing the release, here it is:


Hi Everyone,


I am extremely excited to announce that JBoss AS 7.1.0.Final

"Thunderbird" has been released. This is the first JBoss AS release to

be certified under the Java EE6 Full profile. On top of that it brings

numerous management, security, and clustering enhancements. Altogether

this was a grueling release with 590 Jira issues resolved (we only set

out to do 311!), which brings us to a combined total of 1465 issues

resolved since 7.0.2.Final!


So, a very large thank you is in order to all of our contributors who

had a part in this release. All of those hours working around the clock

to make this happen have finally paid off!
