Subject [ANN] Apache Cocoon 2.1.8 Released
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 11:28:01 GMT
Apache Cocoon 2.1.8 Released
----------------------------

  The Apache Cocoon Community is proud to announce the new release
  of Apache Cocoon.

  Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concept
  of separation of concerns (that is: allowing people to do their job
  without having to step on each other toes) and component-oriented web
  RAD.

  The latest version is downloadable from
  http://cocoon.apache.org/mirror.cgi
  (Please use the mirrors to download the release - it might take
  a little bit more time until the latest release is available on
  all mirrors, so give the mirrors some time - approx. 24h to update.)

  This release includes many bug fixes and smaller enhancements. Most
  notable additions are:

    * Many enhancements to the forms block including AJAX support for
      partial updates to a form, a new tree widget, some experimental
      code for reusable form libraries (coded as a part of the Google
      Summer of Code project) and a sample showing how to create forms
      using relational databases with zero java code.

    * Cocoon Stack Traces: Ever felt overwhelmed when presented with a
      huge java stack trace when something goes wrong in Cocoon? Well,
      now you will instead see a Cocoon related stack trace, showing you
      precisely where the error occurred and in which Cocoon source
      files

    * Many enhancements to the portal block, including improved caching

      mechanisms, support for the Web Services For Remote Portlets
      (WSRP) standard, and provided components for database access using
      OJB.

    * Some small simplifications to the build process (can now exclude
      all blocks, then include just the ones you need)

    * Substantial reworking of the Cocoon documentation system.
      Documentation is now managed using Daisy (cocoondev.org/daisy).
      Because of this, the documentation is now not included within the
      main Cocoon release, but is available as a separate download as
      zipped HTML.

    * A new JCR block allowing access to JCR repositories such as
      JackRabbit (Java Content Repository specification was designed as
      a part of JSR170)

    * A new validation block providing the ability to validate XML in a
      pipeline chosing from a range of schema languages (DTD, XSD, RNG)

    * The ability to use Cocoon pipelines to render JSF pages (using the
      JSF controller)
