JSF 2.3

JSF 2.3 has been approved (https://weblogs.java.net/blog/mriem/archive/2014/09/23/jsf-23-has-been-approved) and the work on the new iteration has begun.

The specification summary reads as follows:
This JSR aims to improve the clarity of the existing JavaServer Faces
(JSF) specification and introduce a small, targeted set of new features
as directed by community contribution. To summarize, JSF 2.3 will target small scale new features, community driven improvements, and platform integration.

These are the new features we can expect:
- Ajax method invocation: Ability to make direct CDI method invocations from Ajax
- Multi-field validation
- Ability to @Inject FacesContext
- EL Performance Optimizations
- Cross-form Ajax Clarifications


The final release should be in Q3, 2016, so we might stick a while with JSF 2.2 ...
