From the roller-dev mailing list (with minor edits for HTML readability):
Finally, we have a release candidate for Apache Roller 3.0 (incubating).
I've provided links to all of the release files, what's new information,
updated docs and Roller Support project downloads.
Please test out the new release and provide feed back here on the list in our JIRA bug tracker. I expect that there will be a least a couple more release candidates.
The Roller webapp (the binary release)
The Roller source (the source release)
*** New features
