That depends on whether someone needs a Java EE 5 app server and JSTL 1.2. 
Personally, I'm still releasing production apps that need to run on Tomcat 
4.1 and WLS 8.1 with a 1.4.2 JDK. I guess I hadn't realized that JSTL is 
actually part of the Java EE 5 spec:

"All Java EE products are required to provide JSTL for use by all JSP pages."

I haven't really been following Glassfish all that much, but I downloaded 
the 9.0-b42 installer (Milestone 6) and, after installing, ran:

java -cp glassfish\lib\appserv-jstl.jar org.apache.taglibs.standard.Version

Which produced:

standard-taglib 1.1.2

So, I guess I'm not really sure what the state of JSTL 1.2 development is 
at this point.
