Apache releases Jetspeed 2.0

Apache announced Jetspeed 2.0. It is a major release and users of earlier versions will have to do some work for migrating to this version.
Unlike previous version, it is fully compliant with JSR-168. In that sense, it can now compete better with Liferay and JBoss. An area where it scores over others is that one can create portlets using PHP, Perl and CGI, JSF, Struts and so on using Apache’s Portals Bridges project. However, I think it still needs to improve on administration related features. For example, in Liferay, it is very easy to define new pages, define what portlets will appear on those pages and what the layout will be like. In these respects, Apache is a little behind Liferay and recently open sourced Sun.
