Release Notes: Idle computer scavenging was implemente: nodes can now start when no keyboard or mouse activity has occurred for a specified time, and stop upon any new activity. The scheduling mechanism provides more fairness among concurrent jobs with the same priority. Log and trace messages from remote nodes and servers are now accessible as JMX notifications. A new mechanism enables the detection of and recovery from hardware failures of a node or server and brings a new level of resilience and reliability to the JPPF grid. A node can now run in the same JVM as a JPPF server.

Release Notes: A new ExecutorService facade was added to the grid. The administration console has seen multiple enhancements and bugfixes. Jobs can now be set to expire at a specified date and time. The J2EE connector can now discover servers on the network and connect to multiple servers. Numerous bugfixes have increased the overall scalability and reliability of the framework.
