What are the versions of portlets technology (api) currently?

In addition to the latest version, which versions are worth going deep into (because some companies or projects still use it)?

How soon do you think is the next version coming?

JSR168 is the current standard, and all major portals support JSR168.

JSR-286 (NOT JSR-268), is being voted on through the Java Community Process. It brings in line the Portlet specification very much with the Servlet & JSP specification, introducing things like listeners and filters.

Pluto and Jetspeed won't have JSR-286 test environments out for a while, so it's best to focus on JSR-168, and have a good knowledge of the Servlet & JSP API, so the new portlet concepts will very much fall in line.
