See the complete list here . Some of the highlights of the release include: Simplified embedded deployment and configuration. Deployment of embedded in JBoss AS 5.0, Eclipse DTP, Squirrel, etc. is straight-forward. See some examples on our wiki . Resolved class loading issues surrounding the usage of vendor specific drivers. A "Hibernate Dialect" for Teiid is available.
