Roller crashed last night

It crashed both on production (this site) and on my LAN. I wasn't even using it on my LAN is the unfortunate part. I have it installed on a RedHat 7.3 box that mimics my production environment, in hopes of finding solutions to these types of problems. Here's the error I found in both logs. I will investigate at a later date.

New Theme Enhancements

I added a slick "theme-switcher" last night. In the bottom-right corner, you will see a couple choices: Navy Blue or Tropical. Click on a choice to switch the colors/images on this page.

StrutsTestCase 1.8 Released

I missed this one by a long shot (released 7.17.02), but I'll tell you anyway. StrutTestCase is a shortcut to using cactus to test your Struts Actions. Use it, it will descrease your development time.

I also am a little partial to this release since I helped Deryl get it working with LookupDispatchAction and Tiles. He did a great job in getting it all to work after I sent him the bugs. I had the easy job ;)

StrutsTestCase for JUnit - release 1.8

This release introduces improved support for Struts 1.1,
provides several requested enhancements, and fixes many
reported defects.

The StrutsTestCase library is now available as four distinct
releases supporting both the 2.2 and 2.3 versions of the 
Servlet specification, and both the 1.0.x and 1.1 versions
of the Struts Framework.

The StrutsTestCase library supports Struts 1.1b1 and the
latest nightly builds, as well as Cactus v1.3 and JUnit
