Subject [ANNOUNCE] JMeter 2.2 has been released
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 11:22:38 GMT
JMeter 2.2 has been released, and should by now now be available from
the mirrors - see:


The ".tgz" and ".zip" files contain exactly the same files; ".zip"
files are best for use on DOS/Windows platforms.

Only the binary archive is needed to run JMeter - there is no need to
download the source archive.

You may need to download some additional optional libraries - see the
getting started page for details:


Note: originally the release was going to be called 2.1.2, but the
changes are quite substantial.


Incompatible changes - see the file changes.html for details:
- requires Java 1.4 or later (the getting started page is wrong, sorry)
- timestamp is now the start time
- JMX format simplified
- jmeter.bat no longer changes to bin directory


New or updated features (partial list):

HTTP Samplers:
- now use the much better HttpClient cookie handling.
- HEAD, PUT, OPTIONS, TRACE and DELETE now supported
- slow connection emulation for HttpClient sampler
- local address can be configured for HttpClient (e.g. multi-homed hosts)
- AJP Tomcat protocol supported
- support for using htmlparser 1.6
- URL rewriter now caches the session id in case it is not included in
every response

For more updates please see the Changes file in the distribution.


Of course there are still some bugs outstanding...

Test cases and patches for bugs are always welcome (but please attach
them to the appropriate Bugzilla issue, as they tend to get mangled or
lost if posted to the mailing list).
