As has been reported earlier on the list, we're hard at work with the
5.5version of Catalyst, and we've just done another preview release.
Check out
the Changes below to see what's new. Among the more exciting stuff is a
brand new shiny dispatcher, (Don`t worry, it works the same way it used to
from a user perspective), a self restarting test server and our new Welcome
screen. We're starting to get close to a final release now, so we would
appreciate if you test your applications with this release, so we can weed
out any incompatibilities on beforehand.

With regards
