We have decided that instead of releasing a CR1 ( candidate release ) we are going to be calling it Milestone6. This extra milestone is to assure the quality and stability that is required before moving to CR releases.
The dates for Milestone6 have been update at our RichFaces 4.0 Release Center page. We have given an extra week for the team to wrap up items, and streamlined the rest of the plan. This means that the 4.0.0.Final release dates have not changed very much at all. We're looking for a Final release a little later in March than originally planned.
