That is great news! I haven't worked with CXF just yet but I implemented some Web services using Codehaus's XFire(where CXF started) about a year ago. The project was running on JBoss with Spring, Hibernate, and Apache's XML Beans. I was pleased with the total package and the minimalistic approach for implementation of Web services. I am definitely interested in the JAX-WS support, JSON data binding and the Eclipse integration.
