   understand and utilize.  The  <em>BeanUtils</em> component provides
   easy-to-use wrappers around these capabilities.
  +    <subsection name='BeanUtils Core And Modules'>
  +        <p>
  +The next release will see a departure from the usual packaging strategy. 
  +Rather than just a single jar, BeanUtils will distribute a 
  +<code>commons-beanutils-core.jar</code> containing the essential parts of BeanUtils
  +with minimal dependencies (for this release just 
  +<a href=''>Commons Logging</a>).
  +Other parts of BeanUtils (typically specialized modules) will be distributed as separate,
  +modular jars with additional dependencies. Hopefully this will allow library and framework

  +creators more finely grained control over their dependencies. It should also help with
  +compatibility issues.
  +        </p>
  +        <p>
  +For everyone else, don't worry :) There will be a single commons-beanutils-all.jar 
  +containing everything. Drop it in and add any dependencies your application needs.
  +        </p>

  +    <subsection name='Bean Collections'>
  +        <p>
  +Bean collections is a library combining BeanUtils with 
  +<a href=''>Commons Collections</a>
  +to provide services for collections of beans. Once class (<code>BeanComparator</code>)
  +was previously released, the rest are new. This new distribution strategy should allow
  +this sub-component to evolve naturally without the concerns about size and scope
  +that might otherwise happen.
  +        </p>
  +        <p>
  +Bean Collections has an additional dependency on 
  +<a href=''>Commons Collections</a>.
