Subject [ANN] Animal Sniffer 1.5 released
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2010 07:19:15 GMT
The Mojo team is pleased to announce the release of Animal Sniffer version
1.5.

This is the third release of Animal Sniffer
(http://mojo.codehaus.org/animal-sniffer/) since it moved from
java.net to the mojo project at codehaus.  We have fixed a number of
bugs (
http://jira.codehaus.org/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=12070&version=16009
)
with this release.

Animal Sniffer provides tools to assist verifying that classes
compiled with a newer JDK/API are compatible with an older JDK/API.

The following tools are provided by animal sniffer:

* A command line tool to dump the class file version number
(http://mojo.codehaus.org/animal-sniffer/animal-sniffer/index.html).
This helps you track down the offending jar file when you see
UnsupportedClassVersionError.

* A set of ANT tasks
(http://mojo.codehaus.org/animal-sniffer/animal-sniffer-ant-tasks/index.html
)
for verifying that your classes comply with an API signature as well
as tasks for creating API signatures from a JDK, or a collection or
jar and class files, or a collection of other API signature files, or
combination of these elements.

* A rule for use in the maven-enforcer-plugin
(http://mojo.codehaus.org/animal-sniffer/animal-sniffer
-enforcer-rule/index.html)
for verifying that your classes comply with an API signature .

* A maven plugin
(http://mojo.codehaus.org/animal-sniffer-maven-plugin/index.html) for
verifying that your classes comply with an API signature as well as
for creating API signatures from a JDK, or the current module's
classes, or the current module's dependencies, or a collection of
other API signature files, or combination of these elements.

The artifacts have been deployed to the codehaus repository and have
been/will be
mirrored to central.

The Mojo Team.
