Date Tue, 07 Jul 2009 17:58:33 GMT
The Tapestry Project released Tapestry 5.1 on May 6. Tapestry 5.1 is a new
stable release for the Tapestry 5 code base; this was a significant upgrade
of Tapestry 5 in terms of functionality and performance. This was also a

Tapestry 3 and Tapestry 4 are unofficially dead; there is limited support
available on the mailing lists, but none of the committers have
bandwidth for maintaining or evolving the code.
