    This week, JBoss is releasing the next release of JBDS (3.0.0GA) and JBoss Tools (3.1.0GA) plugins. New versions of the products contain a number of bug fixes, as well as functional changes and the creation of a more friendly user interface, which is aimed at simplifying the work with all supported technologies.

    JBoss Tools and JBoss Developer Studio are created to work with JBoss technologies, such as JBoss AS, JBoss Seam, JBoss jBPM, Hibernate, JBoss Drools, JBoss ESB, RichFaces, JBoss Portal.
