[RELEASE] Jetty 7.0.0pre0

Jesse McConnell-4
The time has come to get the first pre-release of jetty7 out the door
for review and comment.

This release contains a number of bug fixes as well as raising the bar
in a couple of important areas.

- jdk1.5 minimum requirement
- servlet spec 3.0 sampler with suspend and resume functionalities

NOTE: This is a large disclaimer that the changes for servlet-3.0 are
only proposed and that there is no final servlet-3.0 spec yet. The new
methods for trial purposes are:

 servletContext:  addServlet, addServletMapping, addFilter, addFilterMapping
 cookie: setHttpOnly, isHttpOnly
 request: getServletContext, getServletResponse, suspend, resume,
complete, isSuspended, isResumed, isTimeout, isInitial
 response:  disable, enable, isDisabled
 servletRequestListener: requestSuspended, requestResumed, requestCompleted

These are explained in greater detail in the javadoc.  For an idea on
how some of this functionality can be used I'll shamelessly link to a
blog entry on it here:

A more complete list of the jira issues resolved in this release are
included at the end of this mail.

Also included in this release, or at least backing it up, were a
number of build related changes that I went into greater detail on
the mailing lists and here

This represents the first of a series of jetty 7 pre-releases and we
look forward to hearing what people think of the new functionalities.
We'll definitely keep writing on different aspects of the evolving
servlet spec and other jetty developments.

Also we will be working on updating the wiki to reflect the upcoming
jetty 7 releases and also will work to getting the various installers
converted to jetty7 but for now you can get the traditional style
jetty bundle from the repository at the following location:
