Jolokia is a fresh way of accessing JMX MBeans remotely. It is different from JSR-160 connectors, as it is an agent based approach that uses JSON over HTTP for its communication. It provides new features for JMX remoting: bulk requests allow for multiple JMX operations with a single remote server roundtrip, there is a fine-grained security mechanism for restricting JMX access on specific JMX operations, JSR-160 proxy mode, and history tracking, to name a few. Jolokia's origins are in jmx4perl. Client bindings in addition to Perl have already been added, and more are planned.
Release Notes: Beside bugfixes, this minor release introduces two new configuration variables for more customization possibilities when using the Jolokia agent programmatically.

A fix for NOOP failure (bad worker causes early exit of loop). A fix for PostgreSQL (use INFORMATION_SCHEMA). gearman_client_has_active_tasks() has been added so that you can see if a client has active tasks that it is working on.
