The big news in this release is that Espresso now can be delivered as a simple WAR file, making it easy to deploy in any Java container.
We have tested Tomcat 7 and Jetty 9, but any reasonably modern Java container should work.
We have also tested the WAR file with Amazon's Elastic Beanstalk and Microsoft Azure and it works very nicely in that environment.
The WAR file automatically upgrades the admin database on startup.
Also, the WAR file now includes the Logic Designer and the Live Browser, so you really do get the complete product in one convenient, 22MB package.
Speaking of the Logic Designer, we finally added a feature that's been requested for an embarrassingly long time -- you can now change your admin password, and create additional admin users. This should be welcome for development teams.
There are also lots of bug fixes.
