http://www.infoworld.com/d/data-center/ibm-launch-websphere-8-in-june-285

does this link mean it was supposed to be available for general availability from june?

is Websphere Application server 8 supported on production today, or still beta?

    Claus,

    The short answer is Yes.

    Please see below for detailed system Requirements for WebSphere Application Server Base and Network Deployment V8.0
    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27021246&wv=1

    On each supported platform there are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of WAS available, with exceptions.
    On HP-UX and Solaris/X86, WAS is exclusively 64-bit.
