The presentation was recorded last year as the merger was well underway.  Since then, Struts 2 (WebWork) was released at the end of February, and the WebWork project released it's final version 2.2.5 a couple of weeks ago. The WebWork team wanted to do a big effort to bring in as many optimizations and bug fixes into the last release of WebWork as possible before shifting focus entirely to Struts 2.  See also InfoQ's Struts content.
