   INTRODUCTION:
   
  -This document contains the release notes for this version of the Commons
  -Betwixt package, and highlights changes since the previous version.  The
  -current release adds new features and bug fixes, and is being done now to
  -follow the release early/release often mentality.
  +Betwixt provides a flexible way to map beans into XML - and vice versa. This is the 
  +first betwixt release.
   
  +There's quite a lot of work to be done before Betwixt is ready for a full 
  +release - but it's already used by other projects. This alpha will give a 
  +versioned release for these projects to depend on. A word of warning - though 
  +the betwixt developers take backwards compatible very seriously, it's likely that
  +some parts of the internal API are going to have to change - and some of these 
  +changes may break compatibility. 
   
   NEW FEATURES:
   
  -* 
  +Everything :)
  +
  +But here's some features you might like to take a look at:
  +
  +* Betwixt can write beans to character streams or as SAX events
  +* Betwixt builds on Digester (http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/digester.html) 
  +  to allow xml to be read (using SAX) and mapping into beans in a compatible way
  +* Betwixt supports powerful pluggable general strategies but also allows mappings 
  +  to be customized at the bean level.
   
   
   BUG FIXES:
   
  +KNOWN LIMITATIONS:
  +* This release of betwixt does not validate the element and attribute names 
  +  specified in .betwixt files to ensure that they will produce well formed xml. 
  +  Please take care to ensure that the names you choose for you elements and 
  +  attributes will result in well formed xml.
  +* Betwixt is not usable for swing components, unless you write a wrapper class 
  +  around the Swing component. The XMLEncoder that is used in JDK 1.4.x does a 
  +  better job in this, by analyzing what is needed based on what clone() does and 
  +  custom processing for swing components. If you really need this and are writing 
  +  wrappers around swing components, please contribute it to the betwixt project. 
  +
