Subject Beta-1 release of Jakarta.Commons.Lang
Date Fri, 26 Jul 2002 00:40:59 GMT

Announcing the release of commons-lang-1.0-b1.jar, a library of core Java
functionality that enhances classes in and around java.lang.

The Lang Component provides a host of String manipulation methods, a
nestable exception structure available before JDK 1.4, basic numerical
methods and object reflection, creation and serialization helpers

*** From the Release Notes ***
There is a high demand for the functionality found in Commons Lang in
other Jakarta projects. Some are already using it, often because they
submitted the original code, other times because they find the
functionality useful, and others because they want to release and
don't want to depend upon a nightly build of Commons Lang.

Therefore this is a beta release of a stable api for these projects and
any other interested project to depend upon.

It is important to note that this is not a traditional beta, a piece of
code thrown out with many bugs remaining. It is a beta because additional
classes are expected to be added before a full release, but the classes
contained in this release are not expected to change.
