The WildFly team have announced that WildFly 11 Beta 1 is now available. This release is now feature complete.

The key highlights of WildFly 11 Beta 1 are:

  • New Security Infrastructure - Elytron
  • Simplification of JNDI and EJB invocation
  • HTTP/2 support
  • Out of the box load balancer configuration

Of these changes, the most significant is the Elytron security system.

Elytron offers a centralised security framework that can be used both by applications deployed to the application server and by the application server itself, thus providing a consistent approach to security for WildFly 11 users. Elytron covers both authentication and authorization.
