New Layout : Tabs
The new tabs layout allows to build easily tabs like page : specify which

A lot of interesting examples have been revisited and commented in a "portal" fashion.
Check "Live Examples" menu entry.
Each Tile can have its own controller !
It is now possible to associate a controller to each Tile. This controller (Java code
or struts action) is called immediately before the Tile jsp page. It is useful to prepare
data to be shown by jsp page.
There is now a reload action, and a reloadable factory wrapper allowing to reload Tiles
configuration files without restarting web server.

It is now possible to use and set beans in the configuration file. Such bean can then be
set as a <put> or <putList> tag value.
