Subject Re: ANNOUNCE Geronimo Version 1.0 Available for Download
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2006 06:12:50 GMT
Are you sure you weren't redirected to a mirror that hasn't synced yet 
with the new release?  In my case the suggested mirror site didn't have 
the file, but the other mirror sites did.

Hopefully it will fix itself soon.

>>Choice of Web container

>>The next version of Geronimo is focused on several areas, including:

>>  * improve integration with third-party development tools and
>>    server products
>>User feedback is critical for future released to be successful!

>>  * Offline deployment and assembly tools (expected shortly)
>>  * Installer program (expected shortly)
