Subject RE: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Cocoon 1.8.1 Released
Date Fri, 19 Jan 2001 21:54:34 GMT
Hi Robin,

While rebuilding my RPM I notice that ecmascript and xt stuff
is missing from source.

Strangely it was the same for Cocoon 1.8 release but was fixed later
in cvs.

The missing file are in 

src/org/apache/cocoon/interpreter/ecmascript and 

"...handing C++ to the average programmer seems roughly comparable to
handing a loaded .45 to a chimpanzee."

>  Other highlights include:
>  * New LinkEncodingProcessor to encode all links on a page

>    or unportable XSLT extensions!
>  * sax-bugfix.jar that allows you to see line numbers in

>See Installing.
>  * Documentation has been tweaked and improved in many places.

>  * Slightly better encoding and CLASSPATH support for XSP.
>  * More informative error information in places.
