+<h2>About this version</h2>
-<pre>We are pleased to announce the release of Apache Axis2 version @axisVersion@.
+1.5.1 is a maintenance release to fix several key problems in
+the 1.5 release.

+<h2>Changes since 1.5</h2>
-Apache Axis2 is a complete re-design and re-write of the widely used
+ <li>Fix for the dreaded "CLOSE_WAIT" problem (JIRA issues 935, 2883, etc).  We now
share an instance of HTTPClient across each ConfigurationContext (i.e. each Axis2 server or
ServiceClient) - connection reuse is now automatic.  This means <b>the REUSE_HTTP_CLIENT
flag is no longer necessary or useful, nor is creating your own MultithreadedHttpConnectionManager</b>.</li>
+ <li>Transport deployer is now actually functional, and getListenerManager() in ConfigurationContext
now creates a new LM if there isn't one already.</li>
+ <li>Fix for AXIS2-4034, module versions now support real versions like "1.5.1"</li>
+ <li>NPE problem (see AXIS2-4114) fixed in MessageContext while retrieving policy.</li>
