+                    Apache Commons IO
+                       Version 2.6
+                      Release Notes
+
+INTRODUCTION:
+
+Apache Commons IO is a package of Java utility classes like java.io.
+Classes in this package are considered to be so standard and of such high
+reuse as to justify existence in java.io.
+
+The Apache Commons IO library contains utility classes, stream implementations,
+file filters, file comparators, endian transformation classes, and much more.
+
+Apache Commons IO 2.6 requires at least Java 7 to build and run.
+
+
+DEPRECATIONS
+============
+
+All closeQuietly overloads in org.apache.commons.io.IOUtils have been
+deprecated. Use the try-with-resources statement or handle suppressed
+exceptions manually.
+
+The class org.apache.commons.io.FileSystemUtils has been deprecated.
+Use equivalent methods in java.nio.file.FileStore instead, e.g.
+Files.getFileStore(Paths.get("/home")).getUsableSpace() or iterate over
+FileSystems.getDefault().getFileStores().
+
+
+COMPATIBILITY WITH JAVA 9
+==================
+
+The MANIFEST.MF now contains an additional entry:
+
+  Automatic-Module-Name: org.apache.commons.io
+
+This should make it possible to use Commons IO 2.6 as a module in the Java 9
+module system. For more information see the corresponding issue:
+
+    https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-551
+
+Building Commons IO 2.6 should work out of the box with the latest Java 9
+release. Please report any Java 9 related issues at:
+
+    https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO
+
+

+
+Deprecations from 1.2
+---------------------
+- WildcardFilter deprecated, replaced by WildcardFileFilter
+  - old class only accepted files, thus had a confusing dual purpose
+
+- FileSystemUtils.freeSpace deprecated, replaced by freeSpaceKb
+  - freeSpace returns a result that varies by operating system and
+    thus isn't that useful
+  - freeSpaceKb returns much better and more consistent results
+  - freeSpaceKb existed in v1.2, so this is a gentle cutover
+
+Bug fixes from 1.2
+------------------
+- LineIterator now implements Iterator
+  - It was always supposed to...
+
+- FileSystemUtils.freeSpace/freeSpaceKb [IO-83]

+  - http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4801027
+
+- FileUtils.touch [IO-100]
+  - The touch method previously gave no indication when the file could not
+    be touched successfully (such as due to access restrictions) - it now
+    throws an IOException if the last modified date cannot be changed
+
+- FileCleaner
+  - This now handles the situation where an error occurs when deleting the file
+
+- IOUtils.copy [IO-84]
+  - Copy methods could return inaccurate byte/char count for large streams
+  - The copy(InputStream, OutputStream) method now returns -1 if the count is greater than
an int
+  - The copy(Reader, Writer) method now throws now returns -1 if the count is greater than
an int
+  - Added a new copyLarge(InputStream, OutputStream) method that returns a long
+  - Added a new copyLarge(Reader, Writer) method that returns a long
+
+- CountingInputStream/CountingOutputStream [IO-84]
+  - Methods were declared as int thus the count was innacurate for large streams
+  - new long based methods getByteCount()/resetByteCount() added
+  - existing methods changed to throw an exception if the count is greater than an int
+
+- FileBasedTestCase
+  - Fixed bug in compare content methods identified by GNU classpath

+  - The return of input.read(byte[]) was not being checked to ensure all 8 bytes were read
+
+Enhancements from 1.2
+---------------------
+- DirectoryWalker [IO-86]
+  - New class designed for subclassing to walk through a set of files.
+    DirectoryWalker provides the walk of the directories, filtering of
+    directories and files, and cancellation support. The subclass must provide
+    the specific behaviour, such as text searching or image processing.
+
+- IOCase
+  - New class/enumeration for case-sensitivity control
+
+- FilenameUtils
+  - New methods to handle case-sensitivity
+  - wildcardMatch - new method that has IOCase as a parameter
+  - equals - new method that has IOCase as a parameter
+
+- FileUtils [IO-108] - new default encoding methods for:
+  - readFileToString(File)
+  - readLines(File)
+  - lineIterator(File)
+  - writeStringToFile(File, String)

+  - new methods to create a checksum of a file
+
+- FileUtils.copyFileToDirectory  [IO-104]
+  - new variant that optionally retains the file date
+
+- FileDeleteStrategy
+- FileCleaner    [IO-56,IO-70]
+  - FileDeleteStrategy is a strategy for handling file deletion
+  - This can be used as a calback in FileCleaner
+  - Together these allow FileCleaner to do a forceDelete to kill directories
+
+- FileCleaner.exitWhenFinished [IO-99]
+  - A new method that allows the internal cleaner thread to be cleanly terminated
+
+- WildcardFileFilter
+  - Replacement for WildcardFilter
+  - Accepts both files and directories
+  - Ability to control case-sensitivity
+
+- NameFileFilter
+  - Ability to control case-sensitivity
+
+- FileFileFilter

+
+- TrueFileFilter/FalseFileFilter/DirectoryFileFilter
+  - New singleton instance constants (TRUE/FALSE/DIRECTORY)
+  - The new constants are more JDK 1.5 friendly with regards to static imports
+    (whereas if everything uses INSTANCE, then they just clash)
+  - The old INSTANCE constants are still present and have not been deprecated
+
+- FileFilterUtils.sizeRangeFileFilter
+  - new sizeRangeFileFilter(long minimumSize, long maximumSize) method which 
+    creates a filter that accepts files within the specified size range.
+
+- FileFilterUtils.makeDirectoryOnly/makeFileOnly
