  -Originally, Collections was a general place for placing useful collection classes.
  -With version 3.0, this changes. Collections now has a design and package structure of its
  -As a result, several well-used classes have been deprecated and moved to new packages.
  -This release also includes a lot of new functionality, including new interfaces
  -and new implementations in addition to various bug fixes and refactoring changes.
  -All previously deprecated classes have been removed.
  -The major changes are:
  -<li><strong>New package structure</strong> -
  -    One package now exists for each major interface</li>
  -<li><strong>Bidirectional maps</strong> -
  -    New interface and implementations for maps that need bidirectional lookup</li>
  -<li><strong>Map iterator</strong> -
  -    New interface to enable iteration over map keys and values in one easy step</li>
  -<li><strong>Resettable iterator</strong> - 
  -	Interfaces that defines a reset() method to reset the iterator back to the start</li>
  -<li><strong>Functors</strong> -
  -    A default set of functor implementations is now provided for Predicate, Transformer,
  -    Closure and Factory</li>
  -<li><strong>KeyValue</strong> -
  -    A new package full of key-value pairs and map entry implementations</li>
  -<li><strong>Abstract Hash-based Map</strong> -
  -    Highly extensible hash-based, and hash-link-based map abstract classes</li>
  -<li><strong>PriorityQueue deprecated</strong> -
  -    The top level interface PriorityQueue has been deprecated in favour of Buffer</li>
  +This release focusses on bug fixes and minor enhancements.
  +No interface changes, or deprecations have occurred.
