Subject Re: Thinking about a 2.2 release
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2009 15:23:46 GMT
Should we try reverting trunk (2.2) to use the same levels of OpenEJB 
and Axis as in the recent 2.1.4 release, to see how close we would be to 
a release that passes the TCK?  That way, ActiveMQ 5.3-SNAPSHOT would be 
the major difference left to resolve for a 2.2 release....
