This is the second alpha release for version 2.0 of Open For Business. OFBiz has been refactored and cleaned up a lot for this release. We have done some profiling and speed optimizations and OFBiz is now running MUCH faster, especially in containers like Orion and Resin.
Speaking of Orion and Resin, sample deployment files and instructions are now included for Tomcat4, Jetty4, JBoss 2.4.4, Weblogic 6.1, Orion 1.5.3 and Resin 2.0.5.
This release also includes enhanced documentation including an introduction to the Workflow Engine and a description of the properties files used to configure OFBiz, especially the Entity Engine which seems to have been a source of confusion.
There are a few new features, but this release is mostly a major cleanup release.
