Customer bug fixes and new features in this release. We’ve implemented some JSON support after some users requested this feature. Using the Jettison Framework, you can use JAXB annotated classes and marshal them to and from JSON. A pretty cool framework and easily integrated into RESTEasy JAX-RS. The RESTEasy JAX-RS documentation has also been updated to reflect changes and functionality updates.

Please see our main project page to learn how to download, post questions, etc.
