Subject [ANNOUNCE] VelocityTools 2.0-beta4 release
Date Fri, 29 May 2009 15:55:55 GMT
The Velocity developers are pleased to another beta release of
VelocityTools 2.0 available for download.

Downloads are available here:

This should be useable as a drop in replacement for Tools 1.4 or Tools
2.0-beta3, with a few minor exceptions. The 2.x series of
VelocityTools also requires Velocity 1.5+ and JDK 1.5+.

Changes since 2.0-beta3:
 * Tools references are no longer read-only by default
 * LinkTool encoding is fixed (afaict, please test!)
 * Upgraded to compile-time dependency on Engine 1.6.2
 * Deprecated ListTools due to irrelevance in Engine 1.6.x
 * ResourceTool now gives access to keys
 * MultiViewsTool was modernized into new IncludeTool
 * Added syntactical sugar to CookieTool
 * Multiple new methods contributed for DisplayTool
 * Added the WebappUberspector for natural #set in webapp scopes
(requires Velocity 1.6.x)
 * Refactor JeeConfig to an interface
 * Variety of small fixes and improvements
 * Misc doc improvements
 * Misc showcase example improvements
 * Added experimental "ant rat" target
 * Added many missing license headers

The Velocity developers are very interested in all feedback regarding
Tools 2.0, especially regarding backwards compatibility with apps
designed for Tools 1.4 or earlier. We aim to enable a smooth,
incremental transition for developers and their applications.
