> - Added support for void methods, if extensions are turned on.
> - Added PropertyHandlerMapping.load(ClassLoader, Map). (Perry Nguyen)
> - The authentication handler, type converter and requestprocessor
>   factories are now configurable as properties of the XmlRpcServlet.
>   (Jimisola Laursen)
> - Atomic properties of XmlRpcServer are now configurable as init
>   parameters in the XmlRpcServlet.
> - Reworked the WebServer/ThreadPool framework in order to ensure a
>   clean shutdown.
> - Introduced the method
>   AbstractReflectiveHandlerMapping.isHandlerMethod().
>   This should allow users to prevent remote invocation of certain
>   methods, for example initialization stuff.
> - The ClientFactory is now able to use a custom name for the remote
>   handler. So far, it was always using the interface name.
>   (Eugene Prokopiev)
> - It is now possible to have other objects than strings as
>   map keys.
> - Made extending the XmlRpcCommonsTransportFactory easier.
>   (Steffen Pingel)
> - Added support for redirects. (Andrew Norman)
> - An invalid dateTime value is now causing a more informative
>   error message.
> - Address matching in the Webserver wasn't actually working,
>   because casting of integers to bytes was implemented wrong.
>   (Gamaliel Amaudruz)
> - Make the HttpClient creation in XmlRpcCommonsTransport and the
>   URLConnection creation in XmlRpcSunHttpTransport protected.
>   This is required for cookie support.
> - The WebServer was producing invalid error responses, if
>   contentLengthOptional was set.
> - If the server was throwing an XmlRpcException, then the fault code
>   and fault string weren't given to the client.
>   (Juha Syrjala)
> - The WebServer replies with an HTTP error 401 now, if the
>   client uses chunked encoding.
> - The properties "Extension-Name", "Specification-Vendor",
>   "Specification-Version", "Specification-Title",
>   "Implementation-Vendor-Id", "Implementation-Vendor" and
>   "Implementation-Version" are now present in the MANIFEST files.
> - An NPE was thrown, if the clients request didn't contain a "params"
>   element.
> - The method TimingOutCallback.waitForResponse is now checking, whether
>   a response has already arrived before waiting. (Jonathan Oexner)
> - Fixed a serious performance problem, if the XML parser was sending
>   large content in small pieces. This could happen, for example, if
>   the content contained a large number of character entities.
> - The configuration of the reply timeout in the commons transport was
>   wrong. (Juho Yli-Krekola)
> - The DateParser is now treating an empty string as null. (Carsten
>   Wolters)
> - The XmlRpcRequestParser and XmlRpcResponseParser didn't reset
>   their internal state within startDocument(). Consequently, they
>   haven't been reusable. (Keith McNeill)
