Neither. The grade will be assigned after voting in about a week. See
dev list for details. 1.3.5 is the fifth build since 1.3.0 and is
being expected to make a GA grade. At least that is the intention of
those who are putting their time into preparing the build and fixing
the glitches.

The RequestProcessor side of chaining is explained in the current
user's guide [1], see 4.2.1 and 4.2.2. Also see WhyChain page in the
wiki [2] and the links on the bottom of it.

For new dispatch action see this page [3].

I would appreciate if you looked at "Developing Components with
Struts" page [4] and shared your opinion on whether such a feature
would be useful. Caution, this is not a feature of 1.3.5 and it is not
even accepted in future versions yet, this is just a proposal. Do you
think that Struts components should support JSR-168 portlet spec out
of the box?

Um, I don't know anything about that. I presume Patrick was talking
about Struts 2.0 based on Webwork.
