 ### Activity ###
-BVal has experienced very little activity as of late. As time permits we have
-one team member working in the Commons community on a component that will help
-simplify BVal's code and, manpower being what it is, other BVal development
-has stalled awaiting the availability of this component (Commons [weaver],
-which will allow BVal to streamline/simplify the code it uses to operate in
-secured Java runtime environments).
+A branch has been created to work on the implementation of the 1.1 version
+of the Bean Validation specification, and that work is nearing completion.
+Previous reports have mentioned that BVal was waiting on the availability
+of the new Commons [weaver] component, which is mostly baked at this point
+and should have been released by the time that PMC reports again in December.
+The PMC must next determine a strategy to finalize its 1.0 API and merge
+this work with that having been done on the 1.1 branch to make a compatible
+release of that set of code.
 Mailing list traffic continues to be minimal.
-The Java Bean Validation specification v1.1 has been released last month;
-when BVal development resumes in earnest implementing this version of the
-specification is a top priority.
 ### Community  ###
-No changes.
+A new committer, Romain Manni-Bucau, has been welcomed to the BVal roster.
+Romain is the driving force behind the implementation of spec v1.1.
 ### Branding ###
 Nothing to report.
