+Current Project Status at a Glance
+----------------------------------
+http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo/RoadMap
+
+
+Significant Changes Since the M2 Release
+----------------------------------------
+ * CMP Entity beans are now supported.  However, there are still
+   significant limitations (no EJB QL support).  This is one of the
+   last outstanding core J2EE features.
+
+ * Geronimo security realms have been integrated with the J2EE
+   containers, so J2EE container-managed authentication works.
+
+ * The web container now supports HTTPS with configurable SSL
+   certificates, etc.
+
+ * The transaction system is more robust, with big fixes, transaction
+   log support, etc.
+
+ * An application client container is now included with Geronimo
+
+ * Configuration changes to core Geronimo services and running
+   applications are persisted, though we still lack a user-friendly
+   interface for making such changes.
+
+ * Manifest Class-Path entries in J2EE application modules are
+   supported.
+
+ * JDBS database pools and JMS connection factories, topics, and
+   queues are now fully supported "out of the box".
+
+ * When deploying a J2EE connector, multiple instances of the same
+   resource adapter can be declared in the same deployment plan.
+
+ * The command-line deployment tool supports authentication and hot
+   deployment to a running server.
+
+ * JAX-RPC and SAAJ features are available to applications acting as
+   Web Services clients (though Web Services server features are not
+   yet available)
+
+
+Significant Missing Features
+----------------------------
+ * Full EJB CMP support with EJB QL
+
+ * Message-Driven Beans support for JMS (currently present but buggy
+   in comparison to non-JMS message sources)
+
+ * A good management tool, capable of reconfiguring the core Geronimo
+   services (such as setting a different default transaction timeout,
+   changing default security realm, changing web container listen
+   port, etc.)
+
+ * A complete JSR-77 implementation, including the Management EJB
+
+ * A complete JSR-88 configuration and deployment tool
+
+ * JSR-88 support for Geronimo deployment plan configuration
 
+ * Web Services server features and required J2EE features
+
+ * Fully integrate Tomcat as an alternative to Jetty as the web
+   container
+
+ * Full functionality on non-Sun JVMs
+
+ * Full RMI over IIOP support, including 1.4 and 1.5 JVMs
+
+ * Deployment tools should work from remote machines
+
+ * Application client container should work from remote machines
+
+ * Support for general JDBC XA drivers, and product-specific JDBC
+   enhancements
+
+ * Better features for migrating application and service
+   configurations between different Geronimo servers
+
+ * Ant tasks for common tasks (deployment, etc.)
+
+
+Overall Project Status
+----------------------
+Geronimo has made great strides, and J2EE certification testing is
+well underway.  However, it's probably clear from reading the notes
+above, there's still a lot of work left.
+
+In general, many core features work as expected, and many applications
+(that do not depend too heavily on advanced EJB features) can be
+successfully run on Geronimo.  Core services such as transactions and
+security are available, (though the configuration can be onerous in
+some areas).
+
+There are a still a number of outstanding bugs, and Geronimo has not
+been extensively performance tested.  Your help would be appreciated!
+
+Documentation efforts are underway, and freely available documentation
+covers many of the more stable aspects of the product.
+
+For more information on specific bugs or features, or to help with
+testing efforts, please visit JIRA, our bug/issue tracking system, at
