Oops, I was actually referring to LSD, but I think you are part of the 
"baby steppers" :o) as well. I want to be a "baby stepper" when it is 
practical, and in this case it seems like the most logical thing.

My argument is "There is no Major Change.", so the fuzz is probably 
about something else.

I think only 2 'real' items has been brought up, that validates any 
attention at all.

1. There is a passage about construction injection of lifecycle 
artifacts in the new component spec. This IMO, constitutes a simple 
'enhancement' for the component author, and container authors 
shouldn't have much trouble implementing it.

2. The new site is 'emotionally different' and is a reflection over 
the Avalon Single Unified Platform, without big bells and whistles 
over Avalon Framework 4.x. , which does loose relative importance as 
we move forward. This is somehow seen as something bad, which I don't 

Is there anything else that has really been brought to the table?
