Subject [io] Is commons-io dormant?
Date Sun, 10 May 2015 23:20:50 GMT

The last snapshot ( 2.5-SNAPSHOT ) seems to be over a year old, and last
release 2.4 was in 2012 ( I believe, please correct me if I'm wrong ).  

I started using its Tailer class in 2.4 and realized there are a few
bugs.  Some are fixed over a year now in SVN.  E.g. commons-io 2.4
version swallows InterruptException.  For a class that blocks most of
its life that's very inconvenient when trying to shutdown the thread.
Also there are fixes relating to which although aren't
entirely fixed, have been made much better but are only in the snapshot.

So is commons-io dormant?  Is there something users can do to help if
it's a time-resource issue?

Best regards,
