Version 0.7.4 of RSF is now released and is available in both
CARET and Sakai Maven 2 repositories. This is primarily a rollup of
a few fixes from 0.7.3 and should raise no issues for user code.
All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade to this version of
RSF.

The issues resolved here are mainly of interest to users of Sakai - 
in particular a popular feature request has been 
http://www.caret.cam.ac.uk/jira/browse/RSF-68
which involves overriding the default RSF "level 1" error behaviour
of silently redirecting to a default view, and instead escalating
these errors to the portal error handler. Whilst this issue was
given an initial resolution for RSF 0.7.3, this caused a poor
interaction with the AJAX cycle operated by the RSF date widget,
http://www.caret.cam.ac.uk/jira/browse/RSF-122
as well as being cumbersome for developers to put into effect.

In 0.7.4 as well as fixing this implementation, "portal error
escalation" has been made much easier to configure by supplying
two dedicated Spring contexts - please consult the writeup in
http://www.caret.cam.ac.uk/jira/browse/RSF-68 for details.

Please consult the 0.7.3 release announcement for general details
of roadmap and status.
