You think that 1.3 is a revolution? Or a leap so giant that current
1.2.x users may not be able to make? Afaik, 1.3 can be used without
knowing anything about chains, with minor web.xml fixes. That is how I
used it a while ago. Have this changed?

Having stated in another thread that Struts is all about backwards
compatibility, 1.3 should serve well to 1.1 and 1.2.x users.

I don't see the point in continuing 1.2.x generation. There too many
Struts flavors already.
