The Lift team is pleased to announce Lift 2.2-RC2.

Lift is an elegant, expressive framework that allows any size team build and maintain secure, highly interactive, scalable web applications quickly and efficiently. Lift is built on Scala and compiles to JVM byte-code. Lift applications deploy as web archives (WAR files) on popular application servers and web containers including Jetty, Glassfish and Tomcat. Lift applications can be monitored and managed with the same proven infrastructure used to manage and monitor any Java web application. Lift is open source licensed under an Apache 2.0 license.

This is the second release candidate in the 2.2-RC* series following up on Lift 2.2-RC1 released last week. Since then, the team has closed 13 tickets.

Lift 2.2 would support all of Scala 2.7.7, 2.8.0 and 2.8.1. This would also be the last version to support Scala 2.7.7, the future version would be for Scala 2.8+ only (see post).

Please join the Lift community and help us grow Lift. And a super-big thanks to the 30+ Lift committers who have grown the Lift community and code-base to what it is today... and what it will be in the future!  

We expect to ship Lift 2.2 release on January 5th. All going well, this is probably going to be the last RC before final release. Please test these 2.2-RC* series and help us identify bugs so we can make Lift 2.2 awesome!

Thank you, have fun as always!
