Ummm, not so much a big change - more along the lines of consolidation 
with an emphasis on simplification for the developer. 

Above all - the thing that makes the Avalon Framework so useful is the 
structure and order it provides to the developer.  When we start 
thinking about multiple  mechanisms that can be used for a container to 
supply artifacts to a component, we effectively treble the complexity 
(classic, constructor, mixed case). One way of dealing with this is to 
take a step back and seperate the notions of what we deliver from how we 
deliver.  On the "what" side of things - I'm confident that there are a 
bunch of things that can be consilidated based on what we have learnt 
over the last few years - and I also think  that factory services have 
an import role to play. 

But this is all A5 and I'm really happy with A4 ..
but on the otherhand - I'm still thinking about a better, clearner, 
smarter framework.
