-The next release will see a departure from the usual packaging strategy. 
-Rather than just a single jar, BeanUtils will distribute a 
-<code>commons-beanutils-core.jar</code> containing the essential parts of BeanUtils
-with minimal dependencies (for this release just 
-<a href=''>Commons Logging</a>).
-Other parts of BeanUtils (typically specialized modules) will be distributed as separate,
-modular jars with additional dependencies. Hopefully this will allow library and framework

-creators more finely grained control over their dependencies. It should also help with
-compatibility issues.

-For everyone else, don't worry :) There will be a single commons-beanutils-all.jar 
-containing everything. Drop it in and add any dependencies your application needs.

+<subsection name='BeanUtils Core And Modules'>
+Since the 1.7.0 release BeanUtils has distributed three jars:
+  <li><code>commons-beanutils.jar</code> - contains everything</li>
+  <li><code>commons-beanutils-core.jar</code> - excludes <i>Bean
Collections</i> classes</li>
+  <li><code>commons-beanutils-bean-collections.jar</code> - only <i>Bean
Collections</i> classes</li>
+The main <code>commons-beanutils.jar</code> has an <b><i>optional</i></b>
dependency on
+<a href=''>Commons Collections</a>
+<subsection name='Bean Collections'>
 Bean collections is a library combining BeanUtils with 
 <a href=''>Commons Collections</a>
 to provide services for collections of beans. One class (<code>BeanComparator</code>)
 was previously released, the rest are new. This new distribution strategy should allow
 this sub-component to evolve naturally without the concerns about size and scope
 that might otherwise happen.

 Bean Collections has an additional dependency on
