[ANN] AppFuse 1.6 Released

After many late nights and lots of Red Bull - AppFuse 1.6 is finished. Phew! The major additions to this release are SiteMesh and WebWork. I also did a lot to simplify DAOs and the tutorials. This release is definitely the largest AppFuse one I've ever done - or at least I spent the most time on it. Not only was WebWork added and Spring MVC improved, but I improved the Struts version significantly too. Now it'll handle nested objects, which can translated into nested forms - and validation even works. All classes in the "web" module can now be tested sans-container, which eliminates the need for Cactus and reduces test execution time by over 50%. The relationship between users and roles was also re-worked to take advantage of Hibernate's slick parent-child relationship features.

See the QuickStart Guide and Tutorials to get started right away. Enjoy!
