This server side article comments about the 2.5 specification.

Some new features touched here:
* Clarification on Session scope for when pages contain more then one session context
* the ability to apply a single filter to many requests and many filters to a single request
* the ability to create multiple mappings to the same Servlet
* Allow the use of alternative HTTP methods with authorization constraints
* Support the use of annotations to inject resources into a servlet
* Removal of the restriction on not being able to call setStatus() in error handling
