   This document contains the release notes for this version of the Commons

  +follow the release early/release often mentality.
  -* The protected methods in PropertyUtils used to identify the Method objects
  -  for specific sets of argument types has been extracted into a new
  -  "MethodUtils" class and made public, because they are generally useful.
  -  In addition, several convenience methods have been added to utilize the
  -  new Method finding capabilities.
  +* DynaBeans are here.  Ever wondered how to created loosely typed objects like
  +  python has?  That's DynaBean!  Use them for EJB Dependent Objects, easy
  +  representation of servlet parameters as a JavaBean, and more.
  +* PropertyUtils has been upgraded to allow getters and setters on List objects.
  +  Note that this is a deviation from the JavaBeans spec, but was done to make
  +  life easier for a developer using BeanUtils.  To be more specific, the spec is
  +  located at and we
  +  violating section 8.3.3 ;-)  We hope that eventually the JavaBeans spec might
  +  be updated to include this feature.
  -* MappedPropertyDescriptor - Modified the two-argument constructor so that
  -  read-only properties (no setter method) are correctly recognized.
  -* PropertyUtils - When searching for public methods, also search the public
  -  methods of interfaces implemented by superclasses of the current class,
  -  not just those implemented by the current class itself.
