+1 on cutting a 1.1 beta.

BTW, there was a patch to the JMS transport that Ray Chun posted a
couple of weeks ago while I was away.  It has some cleanup in the JMS
transport code, and also adds a couple of junit tests.  I have been a
little reluctant to commit the patch because the junit test relies on a
JMS provider being up and running in order for the test to pass.  Its
not enough to check for the existence of the right classes on the
classpath, there must be a physical JMS broker (queue manager) to
connect to.

I'm looking at setting up a machine here at Sonic to host the supported
JMS providers.  Sam had volunteered to do that a while back but has
grown silent on the issue.

In the meantime, I'm wondering if any of you ant-meisters can tell me if
there is a way to at least get the test code checked in, but excluded
from the test execution.  The current behavior seems to be that its mere
existence in the directory structure causes the test to get executed. 
If the test fails, the whole build fails (that in itself is an issue).
