RichFaces 4.0 ALPHA2 Release Plan

Version 36

    This release is going to represent the last of the ALPHA releases.  This means that the majority of the core, CDK, assembly, client lib, etc.... functionality is complete and ready for general and rapid component migration.  The ALPHA2 release of RichFaces was originally planned release shortly after the new year.  However because of several unavoidable events the release have been delayed.  This included the RichFaces 3.3.3 release to add JSF 2.0 support to the 3.3.X branch, working with JSF EG and other component libraries to address interoperability issues, and other internal releases.  Throughout these we have continue to have developers working actively on 4.0.
