Subject [ANN] Jakarta Turbine 2.3 released
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2003 11:47:14 GMT
The Jakarta Turbine team is pleased to announce the release of the next
version of the Turbine Web Application Framework: 

                 Jakarta Turbine 2.3

The CVS tag for this version is TURBINE_2_3
The branch tag for maintenance versions is TURBINE_2_3_BRANCH

You can find a list of changes here:

Source and binary distributions for JDK 1.3.1 and JDK 1.4.2 are
available from the apache mirror system or from

Some Notes

* Turbine 2.3 no longer supports WebMacro, Freemarker or Castor
* Turbine 2.3 is the first release to consequently use commons-logging
  and commons-configuration to remove the need for its own logging and
  resource services
* Turbine 2.3 can load and use Avalon Components with the Avalon Service
* The Templating engine at the core of Turbine has been completely
overhauled and is now much more flexible and stable. However, this comes
at the price that using "/" for template separators is no longer
possible (This is a major change from our previous versions).
* Turbine 2.3 uses maven as its primary build tool. Building with
Eclipse is possible but not officially supported. Building with ant only
is no longer supported.

The Turbine team really would like to thank all the contributors, users
and members of the development and user list that helped with comments,
patches and critisism to make this the best Turbine release yet. The
announcement author would also like to thank the Torque team because I
stole the layout of the announcement from you. ;-)
