Hello Gary,

thanks very much for your efforts. Such extensive testing is very 
welcome of course.

Was a problem in build system, when UTF-8 files were filtered. Ant can't 
handle UTF-8 at least while filtering.

Works for me.

Same for me. Nice thing is that even the link to the documentation how 
to configure the catalogs did not work :) The documentation is no longer 
included in Cocoon builds.

Same like above.

Oh man, how long have all those things been broken. We have to wake up 
the people more often for testing ;)

Fixed the text. This feature is now configured via config.enable-uploads 
in and set to true by default.

Unfortunately that's a side effect of linking trunk sources into the 
branch. The Captcha only works with the new JXTemplateGenerator from the 
template block but not with the one from branch core. While on trunk the 
one from template block is for sure correctly registered as "jx" it is 
the old one on the branch. The new one is named "newjx" there.

Don't know how to solve it without risking to break any template using 
jx. I could switch "jx" to "oldjx" and "newjx" to "jx", but with which 
side effects?

Can somebody comment where old and new differ?

Same for this one - at least it works with "newjx". Btw, what's the 
sense of it? Both "profiling information" samples only produced XML.

No, only a stylesheet thing. Probably Forrest output has slightly changed.

Yes, works only with Tomcat by default. All samples work for me.

Didn't spend any more time on it.

Default is http://localhost:8888/docs/index.html and - again - 
documentation is no longer included. Don't know what direct it to instead.

Needs some SAP stuff.

Mounting itself works. But no idea what it tries to do then. Vadim?

Seems some incompatibilities between libraries:


No idea. What's org.apache.xpath?

Temperature failed with "No Deserializer found to deserialize a 
':zipcode' using encoding style 
''." for me.

Currency with SocketException: Connection reset.

Rest tomorrow :)
