 package. Commons CLI provides a simple API for working with the command line
 arguments and options.

-NEW FEATURES:
-
-  * A new parser is available: DefaultParser. It combines the features of the GnuParser and
the PosixParser.
-    It also provides additional features like partial matching for the long options, and
long options without
-    separator (i.e like the JVM memory settings: -Xmx512m). This new parser deprecates the
previous ones.
-    (CLI-161, CLI-167, CLI-181)

-  * Added new fluent API to create Option instances via builder class Option.Builder.
-    This replaces the now deprecated OptionBuilder. Thanks to Duncan Jones, Brian Blount.

-
-  * PosixParser now supports partial long options (--ver instead of --version). (CLI-160)

-
-  * HelpFormatter now supports setting the displayed separator of long options. Thanks to

+
+NEW FEATURES
+============
+
+o --     : The method getOptionProperties() in the CommandLine class was added

+o CLI-163: PosixParser no longer stops the bursting process of a token if
+           stopAtNonOption is enabled and a non option character is

+           unrecognized long option when stopAtNonOption is enabled.

+o CLI-133: NullPointerException in Util.stripLeadingHyphens when passed a null

+           CommandLineParser interface. 
+o CLI-135: Backwards compatibility between 1.1 and 1.0 broken due to
+           Option.addValue removal.
