Yep after last release with everything in one project we split the project up 
into many parts. That way different parts that have different 
characteristerics (ie stable vs not stable etc) can be released separately.

hopefully one will occur in next few weeks. Basically it is waiting on a 
release of excalibur subproject. After that it is about 30 minutes work to 
prep a release ;)

Well we have cornerstone which has a demo .sar and a list of useful utilities 
(scheduler, connection manager, socket factories etc). When we release 
phoenix we will release cornerstone not long after.
