Dear Team,

Thank you very much for your attention to my request and please, let me
give small comment regarding my previous message.

Frankly speaking, I have meant primarily the release cycle for 2.1.x and
2.2.x versions of Geronimo.
We were not using the 3.0 version of Geronimo, as there was no stable
non-beta release for it.
Actually, we were using the 2.2.1 version of Geronimo in our previous
For the moment, I am in position to make a decision for moving to the
version 2.1.8 for new project, as the release is much newer.

The question was, that if the minor versions were released at least
semi-annually, it would be very usefull for us in terms of access to
bug-fixed versions.
In this case, we would never discuss in our company the variants with
downgrade to previous major version of application server.

Regarding the 3.0 version of Geronimo, I would be glad to use it in
upcoming projects, but if the newer minor versions of 3.0.x could be
released more frequently.

Hope, you got my idea.
Sorry for inconveniences caused.

Best regards,
Arsen Abdrakhmanov
