Work has already started for EJBCA 3.9.3, as well as 3.10. For 3.9.3 we
will for the first time in ages get some new bling on the admin GUI,
thanks to David Carella in France who contributed some styles for the
admin GUI.

EJBCA 3.10 will have many changes, preparing for the big move to EJBCA
4.0. Among other things all configuration in properties files are now
possible to store outside of the ear file, and change dynamically in
