Recently my fellow colleague Christian Posta wrote two great blog entries about fabric, which I want to share to you.

In his 2nd blog DevOps with Apache Tomcat/TomEE and Fabric8, Christian talks and demonstrates some of the upcoming functionality in the next 1.1 beta7 release, where fabric8 adds support for provision and manage Apache Tomcat, and other containers. Christian recorded a video demonstrating this in action.
We are currently working hard on getting the last pieces into the 1.1 beta7 release which ought to be released this week. We have also worked on revamping the fabric8 website, and working on having the documentation in a nice bookish readable format, and as in PDF as well. The documentation is nicely readable now on handheld devices. I am also putting my touches on improving the quickstarts and examples to provide a lot more documentation and how-to. So expect the documentation, quickstarts, and other examples to have out attention, leading up to the 1.1 release.
We want to do a bunch of beta releases, as this makes it much easier for the community to try out fabric8, and help contribute to the project, before we reach 1.1 final release (ETA sometimes after the summer vacation).
