Subject Re: Upgrade to velocity 1.5 - a few questions
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2007 04:05:35 GMT

I'll let others answer #1 and #2, though my impression is that it won't be
difficult.

JDOM 1.0 is a requirement for Anakia.  There was a change to the API
(blanking out on the specific).  If you don't use Anakia, it doesn't matter.
