>> Turbine is a servlet based framework that allows experienced Java
>> developers to quickly build secure web applications. Turbine is an
>> excellent choice for developing applications that make use of a
>> services-oriented architecture. Some of the functionality provided
>> with Turbine includes a security management system, a scheduling
>> service, XML-defined form validation server, and an XML-RPC service
>> for web services.  The Turbine core is free of any dependency on a
>> presentation layer technology. Both JavaServer Pages (JSP) and
>> Velocity are supported inside Turbine. For developers already
>> familiar with JSP, or have existing JSP tag libraries, Turbine
>> offers support for the Sun standard.

> A static blurb like this could be created for each project and added

>>
>> The CVS tag for this version is TURBINE_2_3
>> The branch tag for maintenance versions is TURBINE_2_3_BRANCH
>>
>> You can find a list of changes here:
>> http://jakarta.apache.org/turbine/turbine-2.3/changes.html

>> Some Notes
>>
>> * Turbine 2.3 no longer supports WebMacro, Freemarker or Castor
>> * Turbine 2.3 is the first release to consequently use commons-logging
>>   and commons-configuration to remove the need for its own logging and
>>   resource services
>> * Turbine 2.3 can load and use Avalon Components with the Avalon 
>> Service
>> * The Templating engine at the core of Turbine has been completely
>> overhauled and is now much more flexible and stable. However, this 
>> comes
>> at the price that using "/" for template separators is no longer
>> possible (This is a major change from our previous versions).
>> * Turbine 2.3 uses maven as its primary build tool. Building with
>> Eclipse is possible but not officially supported. Building with ant 
>> only
>> is no longer supported.
>>
>> The Turbine team really would like to thank all the contributors, 
>> users
>> and members of the development and user list that helped with 
>> comments,
>> patches and critisism to make this the best Turbine release yet. The
>> announcement author would also like to thank the Torque team because I
>> stole the layout of the announcement from you. ;-)
