We're a few months away. We haven't set a release target, yet.

Geronimo creates server assemblies which embed either Tomcat or Jetty. You don't need to install
them separately. They are included in the server distribution.

If you need Java EE capabilities, you'd want Geronimo. If you simply need JSP/Servlet support,
then either Tomcat, Jetty, or Geronimo can be used.

Geronimo 2.1.x and 2.2.x both support Java EE 5 (and thus the  Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 specification).
