I've been thinking that it would be a good idea to get a 3.3 release out 
based on current CVS HEAD.  Some documentation updates are needed - and 
I would like to get some examples of facilities into the tutorials.

Main benefits of a release would be:

   (a) availability of constructor based injection
   (b) getting out the improvements to the property management
   (c) log4j support
   (d) trials with facilities

There are arguments for getting more work done on the composition model 
and security is also a work in progress - but even so - my thoughts are 
that a 3.3 release would be helpful.

Here is a shortlist of the things I see that would need to be done 
before a release:

   (a) get in place complete documentation of the component
       contract and deployment contract (some new material
       required, some content that exists but is scattered)
   (b) get in place documentation of the dynamics tutorial
   (c) get in place a general facilities tutorial

Anyone see anything else we would/should include?

Cheers, Steve.
