3.0 RC is not that far away, we are not talking about months, but weeks; 
CXF 3.0 has many major components so it takes a bit of time to make all 
of the relevant work completed, but it is getting close to the initial 
release, I'll update you when we have more info.
In meantime, please start experimenting with 3.0-SNAPSHOT; as I said 
JAX-RS 2.0 API work is mostly complete, no major updates are expected 
there at all, going to be stable enough...

Cheers, Sergey
