Jakarta MVC 2.0 passed the plan review ballot this week. We have already done the work adjusting to the
jakarta.mvc.* namespace and passed the TCK with Eclipse Krazo. The only thing left is to initiate the final steps for a Jakarta EE specification release, which we will do at the beginning of next week.
I want to thank everyone that voted in the 2020 JCP Executive Committee elections. The Eclipse Foundation keeps its elected seat and will continue to represent the interests of the open-source community there.
