As can be seen from the change log below, the rate of changes is still
high for a release candidate - so we expect at least an RC1. However the
change from beta status to rc status reflects the stability of the core
of Jetty, a satisfaction with the main API and our intent to achieve
a stable 6.0.0 release in the next month or two.

* Totally rearchitected and rebuilt, so 10 years of cruft could be removed!
* Improved "dependancy injection" and "inversion of control" design of components
* Improved "interceptor" design of handlers
* Smart split buffer design allows large buffers to only be allocated to active connections. The
resulting memory savings allow very large buffers to be used, which increases the chance of efficient
asynchronous flushing and of avoiding chunking.
* Optional use of NIO Buffering so that efficient direct buffers and memory mapped files can be
* Optional use of NIO non-blocking scheduling so that threads are not allocated per connection.
* Optional use of NIO gather writes, so that for example a HTTP header and a memory mapped
* file may be sent as sent is a single operation.
- Missing Security
- Missing Request Dispatchers
