  +      Previously resolve did not throw a ContextException. This made it

  +      Add a makeReadOnly() method to the default implementations of Configuration,

  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="add">
  -    Added the notion of ServerApplication to replace the concept of .bar as a server. 
  -    A ServerApplication is a isolated environment that manages it's own threads, 
  -    security, logging, classloading etc. It has a specific layout as documented 
  -    in Assembly guide. The kernel was refactored to contain ServerApplications
  -    rather than Blocks and a lot of support was refactored to support safe separation
  -    of ServerApplications. The archives are in .sar format and are similar in many 
  -    aspects to .war of servlet fame.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="add">
  -    Refactored thread management so specific thread pools can assigned to specific
  -    threads/thread groups in a manner similar to how ContextClassLoader is associated 
  -    with threads. Thread management was also moved to a new package 
  -    (org.apache.avalon.util.threads).

  -    Added two new services/blocks by refactoring code from tomcat and old SocketServer.

  -    There is now a SocketManager and a ConnectionManager. The TLS code is now much improved

  -    and there is the beginning of client socket factory. This provides for future client

  -    socket code factories for SSL/TLS or SSH1/2 etc. Also adapted SimpleServer to use 
  -    these methods.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Changed config file from per .bar to per .sar and changed name from BAR-INF/&lt;
  -    barname&gt;.conf.xml to conf/assembly.xml. It still contains configuration data
as 
  -    well as assembly data but this will be removed in a future revision.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="add">
  -    Added an extra config file to .sar (conf/server.xml) that is responsible for 
  -    configuring .sar wide variables. Some examples include security, logging and thread
loading.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Refactored most of the code to use AbstractLoggable and the corresponding getLogger()

  -    Continued to refine the Camelot API.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="add">

  -    environmental information.

  -    Many of the lifecycle methods now have a chance to fail by throwing an exception.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="remove">
  -    Removed all notion of kernel configurability.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Enabled securityManager by default and now ServerApplications have to specify a security
  -    policy.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Removed classloader hack in ObjectStorageRepository as it is no longer required with

  -    new .sar format.

  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Homogenized the remaining code to follow one style.
  -  </action>

  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Made loading of jars relative to avalon-loader.jar rather than via current working

  -    directory so that some tools (ie VAJava) would not complain.

  -  <action dev="PD" type="update">
  -    Separated out tools directory/jars from main jars that avalon uses.
  -  </action>

the
  -    services it offers, the services it depends upon and other meta information.
  -  </action>
  -  <action dev="PD" type="add">
  -    Added support for Blocks to implement BlockContextualizable. If they do this the kernel

     <action dev="BL" type="update">
  -    Upgraded Loader architecture and the AvalonClassLoader to provide
  -    better detail, as well as new ways of configuring the loader at the
  -    beginning.  It does not require any extra libraries to load.
