The new version of Jigsaw (2.0) seems to be far more stable than the 1.0
serie. The 2.0alpha1 version was not complete and was here only to show
the differences with the previous (1.0) version.
Now, more or less everything has been ported from 1.0beta to 2.0, and we
plan to do a new release soon (rsn, in less than two weeks).

The extension is not recognized? Or it is due to the resource store bug.

Yes, use *default* as the identifier, *noextension* for resource without
an extension.

The plans are to use the 2.0 version.
We had the same problem with an internal production server based on
Jigsaw. I had to repair its configuration several time, then we ported the
resources/frames used in this server for the 2.0 and now... everything is
fine :)
Stay tuned for the next version (probably 2.0beta1).
