> Changes with Apache Cocoon 2.0rc1
> 
> *) New "capture" logicsheet that allows parts of 
> XSP-generated XML to be
> captured as XMLFragment or DOM objects. [SW]
> 
> *) Removed ThreadSafe from the Action interfaces : the decision to be
> ThreadSafe is left to each implementation. Consequently, 
> existing actions
> now explictly implement ThreadSafe. [SW]
> 
> *) Redesigned the handling of the cocoon: protocol. Removed 
> the pushURI and
> popURI methods. It is now possible to load cocoon: resources 
> parallel in
> several tasks. [CZ]
> 
> *) Fixed package name generation for subsitemap components 
> and external
> components. [VG]
> 
> *) Added ability to specify custom 404 error page for pipelines using
> map:handle-errors element with attribute type="404". [VG]
> 
> *) Catch NoClassDefFoundError and throw 
> ResourceNotFoundException if XSP was
> requested with different case. [VG]
> 
> *) Added patch by Stuart Roebuck (stuart.roebuck@adolos.com) 
> fixing the byte
> handling of the ImageDirectoryGenerator. [CZ]
> 
> *) Added capability to resolve external XML entities using an entity
> resolver. See the documentation for "Entity Catalogs". [DM]
