I agfree - it would be nice if someone could come out with a guestimate of when the final JBoss 5.0 is coming out -- even if its a ballpark date. It seems like there's a lot more active development with the Glassfish project (maybe I should be switching!).
I see a "stay tuned" from this July:
I also see a "Enter The JBoss Matrix" blog posting saying "will culminate with the release of JBoss 5 sometime in 2006":
Other than that I can't find anything -- not even a JBoss 5 Bata 3 release date (I looked at their Jira).
Thanks for finding that jaikiran. I must not have put in the right search terms to find it. I hope its not too late (its already past November and still no site of beta3)!
