Alexandru-

I think just about everyone agrees that the documentation needs to be updated a bit, and more documentation is always a great idea.  I think you'll be happy to know that there is a Jython book being authored at this time.  Authors include Frank Wierzbicki, Jim Baker, Leo Soto, Victor Ng, and myself.  This guide is sure to bring the Jython documentation set to a more current level.  This book is due to be published by Apress in the fall, and it will also be released open source.  You can view the project at http://kenai.com/projects/jythonbook to see the progression.

That being said, I have also taken the task to help out with updating the Jython.org site.  I plan to go through the documentation on the site and update it where it is needed.  Thanks for the feedback on the topics you'd like to see documented better, we will keep them in mind.  It definitely helps to have a tangible list of what people are interested in learning more about.

Best

Congrats! I've been waiting for this moment for quite a while, so I'd
like to thank all people involved on getting this done!

If you'd allow me one suggestion, I'd say this would be the moment
jython needs some good documentation. I've been browsing the wiki and
while I might be wrong I think that most of the information in there
is quite old. More to the point, what I'd like to see would be some
clear docs about:

1. what modules are supported and which are not (and how someone can
implement an unsupported module)
2. when compared to CPython, what are Jython current limitations
3. how can you use Jython and Java together
4. a list of supported frameworks (community should get involved here)

Once again thanks for the release!
