In short, finally full class reloading support has come to Java. Enjoy it! Version 3.0 includes a number of great new features. Most notable is the addition of support for three different Java EE servers and/or servlet containers, namely JBoss (7.1.1), Tomcat 7.x, 6.x and Jetty 8.x, 7.x.

With the 3.0 release, we have begun our quest to support changes to all kinds of resources and web frameworks starting with Spring MVC, Hibernate bean validation, RestEasy.
