New Software Release - Firefox-4.0Beta4/5 & 6 + Glassfish 3+ Timeline

Just a quick update to discuss Firefox Beta Releases 4 to 6 (current as at 20101004) and an update of the Glassfish Server Time line for Releases.

Firefox 4 Beta 4, 5, & 6

I had a previous post linked here that discusses previous Firefox Betea's. Since that time Beta 4, 5 and 6 have been released.  The links below provide info on Time Lines, Features and Bug Lists for the Beta's.

Glassfish Time Lines

 The following link provided me with the information about the next set of Glassfish 3 up to v4 releases. The v3.2 and v4.0 releases have Java EE 7 functionality in them and that is primarily what Ill be looking forward to. The v3.0.1 release has come out at this stage (i.e.: 20101004) already and Im using it and this provided some of the initial bug fixes that come from a new major release version (i.e. when they went from v2.x to v3.0 that x.0 release always has a bunch of bugs and the first 100 day patch release is where the stability IMHO comes in...although GFv3.0 was not really that bad and only had a few minor issues).
