not at all :-)

- ECM++
- Virtual sitemap components
- blocks (sitemap blocks, exposing blocks)
- per sitemap reloading classloader (for dev)
- reworked property management
- Spring integration (Spring block)
- possible to listen to sitemap events
- refactoring of Javaflow (uses now the commons-javaflow project which
   was started by Thorsten)
- introduction of CTemplate (refactoring of JXTemplate in 2.1.x)

... and maybe some other things

We also have the plan that Cocoon 3.0 will be based on blocks that run in a 
shielded classloader. Currently OSGi ist our best bet (and I'm quite optimistic 
that it will fit our needs).
