I've recently upgraded our image to utilize the newly released xbean 
3.3, myfaces 1.2.2, geronimo-transaction 2.1, and geronimo-connector 
2.1.  Earlier I had updated the Tomcat build image and created a private 
build for Pluto.

I think the only snapshots left in our image are some of the specs (JACC 
& JASPI ... and it looks like Guillaume is working those along with 
upgrading others) and OpenEjb.
