We have lately been working to support our 2.0.0 release from last fall.
Most notably this release, which rewrote a large portion of the codebase,
is quite slow compared to the reference implementation of the Java Bean
Validation (BV) specification so our near-term efforts will revolve around
making improvements in that regard.
The 2.0.1 release described in last quarter's report as being in planning
has not yet occurred. To remind the reader, one of the main purposes of
the release would be to enable the proper tooling to certify Apache BVal
as an implementation of the 2.0 BV specification.
We retain a small core of developers with the desire to keep this project
afloat. It must be admitted that the available time for this project
among this pool of resources is suboptimal; we continue to do what we can.
