 System Requirements
 -------------------
-You need a platform that supports JDK 1.4 or JDK 1.5 (and some
-features such as HTTPS currently depend on Sun implementation
-classes, so a Sun JVM would be the best bet).
-
-Most testing has been done on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.  For a
-list of notes on specific configurations, see

+process (including the ability to change ports and the default
+administrator account)
 
 To start Geronimo, change to the Geronimo directory and run
 
    java -jar bin/server.jar
 
 
+Deploying Applications
+------------------------------
+To deploy a J2EE module or application, start Geronimo and then
+run (for example):
+
+   java -jar bin/deployer.jar deploy my-web-app.war [deploy plan]
+
+You will need to use the username "system" and password "manager"
+unless you customized those during the install process.
+
+For more information on the commands and options supported by the
+deploy tool, run
+
+   java -jar bin/deployer.jar help [command]

 Significant Changes Since the M3 Release
 ----------------------------------------
-  == FILL ME IN ==
+ * EJB support is complete
+ * Web Services support is complete
+ * JSR-77 support, including the Management EJB
+ * Securty configuration has changed dramatically
+ * The current Geronimo code passes the J2EE TCK tests, but has not
+   yet been certified.
 
 
 Significant Missing Features
 ----------------------------
-  == FILL ME IN ==
+ * A web management console
+ * Deployment from a machine other than the server
+ * A build that uses Tomcat by default (Tomcat can be activated as a
+   manual process, but as of M5 we will be distributing both Jetty and
+   Tomcat builds)
+ * A hot deploy directory (though the deploy tool can hot deploy)
+ * JSR-88 support for Geronimo deployment plan configuration
+ * Full functionality on non-Sun JVMs (a portable CORBA implementation
+   is not expected for version 1.0)
+ * Clustering (not expected for version 1.0)
 
 
 Overall Project Status
 ----------------------
-Geronimo is currently undergoing TCK testing.  Many features work, but
-it is not fully J2EE compliant yet.  Geronimo has also not been
-extensively performance tested.  Your help would be appreciated!
+Geronimo has passed the TCK certification tests, meaning that all J2EE

+focused on usability at this time.  However, Geronimo has also not
+been extensively performance tested.  Your help would be appreciated!
 
 Documentation efforts are underway, and freely available documentation
