Subject RE: What's in the future for Velocity?
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2002 07:59:17 GMT
Actually I've just thought of the one thing that does bug me, and I know has
bugged others (wasn't paying attention to the previous threads but I
remember there being a large # of posts about it) and that is:

White space gobbling (or lack there of).

We need something like what VB has when breaking a string over multiple
lines ( &_ ).  Something that says to velocity "now, I _know_ there is a
CR/LF following this, but just ignore it ok!"

... and in the same vein, is there a 'wish list' that we can contribute to?
For instance, it would make my life easier if #macros could accept 
variable numbers of arguments a la JavaScript, or, at least, interpret 
missing arguments as null strings rather than throwing parse errors.

But, I have to agree with Paul that Velocity's minimalist design is a 
major strength of the product, and I wouldn't want that to change!
