Phoenix is almost Beta quality at the moment. There is a few things that I 
need to add such as ClassLoader management, improved deployment and a few 
unit tests for the tools package. This will prolly take about 2 lazy Sunday 

However the real thing that is holding us back is the complete and utter lack 
of a decent management console. I can quite easily add new MBeans for the 
serverside half of the management interface and refactor things on that end 
to make it nice and clean. However to do that I need some testing in a real 
environment and this is currently not possible because no one has written a 
frontend. Unfortunately I am really bad at writing that bit ... every time I 
start on it I end up finding excuses to play with other things ;)

So as soon a management console is written it will take a few weeks to get 
phoenix into full beta mode. However I don't know when that will occur ;)

Cornerstone is a different thing altogether and there are parts that are 
ready for prime time, others that are completely lacking and still others 
that need lots of tweaks. However we haven't even done alpha releases of 
cornerstone so this project could take a while ;)
