I just learned Jetty 8 was released last Thursday. Jetty is a lightweight Java webserver backed by the Eclipse Foundation. But the search below indicates no release announcements at all. No blogs, no headlines, nothing. Even the main Jetty page at http://www.eclipse.org/jetty/downloads.php doesn’t mention it.
I only found out about it via a serendipitous search on Maven Central: http://search.maven.org/#search%7Cga%7C1%7Corg.eclipse.jetty
What’s going on? Was this an accidental release?
