Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Velocity 1.5
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2007 18:09:57 GMT
The Apache Velocity Team announces the immediate availability of the
of Apache Velocity 1.5.  This long-awaited release is the first major
release of the Velocity engine as an Apache top level project (TLP).

Apache Velocity is well-known in the Java field as a lightweight,
easy-to-use templating library for creating dynamic web sites and
performing other text-generation tasks.

Besides improved template syntax and a slew of bug fixes, this release
offers a range of features that enhance peformance and ease the process
of integration with other applications and web frameworks.  A few

* Improved syntax with new capability for decimal numbers, literal map
definitions,  multi-line statements, and support for automatic escaping
of HTML and other special entities.

* New capabilities to aid integration with other applications and web
frameworks, including enhanced error reporting, a new logging
subsystem, and a switch to unchecked instead of checked exceptions.

* Correction of several important scalability problems, including a
Least Recently Used (LRU) cache implementation and a fix to a nasty
race condition that could occur under heavy load conditions.

* Almost all known bugs have been fixed, including issues with macro
recursion, a SQL injection vulnerability, several memory leaks
and compile-time incompatibilities with Java 1.5 and 1.6.

Apache Velocity 1.5 is downloadable from the Apache Velocity web site
