Dear hAkkers,
 we, the Akka committers, are proud to announce Akka 1.3!
 What is Akka?
 Akka is the platform for the next generation event-driven, scalable and  fault-tolerant architectures on the JVM.
 Akka implements a unique hybrid of: Actors, which gives you: Simple and high-level abstractions for concurrency and parallelism.  Asynchronous, non-blocking and highly performant event-driven programming model. Very lightweight event-driven threads (create ~13 million actors on 8 G RAM). High-availability through supervisor hierarchies with let-it-crash  semantics. Excellent for writing highly fault-tolerant systems that never stop, systems that self-heal. Software Transactional Memory (STM). Transactors: combine actors and STM into transactional actors. Allows you  to compose atomic message flows with automatic retry and rollback. Remote actors: highly performant distributed actors with remote supervision and error management. Agents & Dataflow Concurrency  Java and Scala API.
 What’s new in 1.3?
 Akka 1.3 is more a maintenance release than a revolutionary step: I includes a couple of important bugfixes, and also a brand new  0MQ integration kindly contributed by Karim Osman!
 Highlights: -0MQ integration - http://akka.io/docs/akka/1.3/scala/zeromq.html  -Optimizations and bugfixes

No new bugs? Where's the fun in that?
