  +This document contains the release notes for the 2.1 version of Apache Jakarta Commons
  +Commons Lang is a set of utility functions and reusable components that
  +should be of use in any Java environment.
  +- The Nestable interface defines the method indexOfThrowable(Class).
  +Previously the implementations checked only for a specific Class.
  +Now they check for subclasses of that Class as well.
  +For most situations this will be the expected behaviour (ie. its a bug fix).
  +If it causes problems, please use the ExceptionUtils.indexOfThrowable(Class) method instead.
  +Note that the ExceptionUtils method is available in v1.0 and v2.0 of commons-lang and has
not been changed.
  +(An alternative to this is to change the public static matchSubclasses flag on NestableDelegate.
  +However, we don't recommend that as a long-term solution.)
  +- The StopWatch class has had much extra validation added.
  +If your code previously relied on unusual aspects, it may no longer work.
  -Since the release of the 2.0 package the following classes have been added:
  -Since the release of the 2.0 package the following classes have been changed:
  +- The enum package has been renamed to enums for JDK1.5 compilance.
  +All functionality is identical, just the package has changed.
  +This package will be removed in v3.0.
  -ID Sev Pri Plt Owner State Result Summary 
  +- NumberUtils.stringToInt - renamed to toInt
  +- DateUtils - four constants, MILLIS_IN_* have been deprecated as they were defined
  +as int not long. The replacements are MILLIS_PER_*. 
  -	Deprecated and replaced by org.apache.commons.lang.enums.* and will be
  -	removed in version 3.0. All classes in this package are deprecated and 
  -	repackaged to org.apache.commons.lang.enums since enum is a Java 1.5 
  -	keyword. 
  +- Mutable package - contains basic classes that hold an Object or primitive
  +and provide both get and set methods.
  +- DurationFormatUtils - provides various methods for formatting durations
  +- CharEncoding - definitions of constants for character encoding work
  +- CharUtils - utilities for working with characters
  +- ArrayUtils - many more methods, especially List-like methods
  +- BooleanUtils - isTrue and isFalse methods that handle null
  +- ClassUtils - primitive to wrapper class conversion methods
  +- ClassUtils - class name comparator
  +- IllegalClassException - extra constructor for common instanceof case
  +- NotImplementedException - supports nested exceptions
  +- ObjectUtils - hashcode method handling null
  +- StringUtils - isAsciiPrintable to check the contents of a string
  +             -- ordinalIndexOf to find the nth index of a string
  +             -- various remove methods to remove parts of a string
  +             -- various split methods to provide more control over splitting a string
  +- SystemUtils - methods to get system properties as File objects
  +             -- extra constants representing system properties
  +- Validate - new methods to check whether all elements in a collection are of a specific
  +- WordUtils - new methods to capitalize based on a set of specified delimiters
  +- EqualsBuilder - now provides setter to internal state
  +- ToStringStyle - new style, short prefix style
  +- ReflectionToStringBuilder - more flags to control the output with regards to statics
  +- ExceptionUtils - added indexOfType methods that check subclasses, thus leaving the existing
  +indexOfThrowable method untouched (see incompatible changes section)
  +- NumberUtils - various string to number parsing methods added
  +- DateUtils - isSameDay method added to compare day ignoring time
  +- FastDateFormat - extra formatting methods that take in a millisecond long value
  +                -- additional static factory methods
  +- StopWatch - new methods for split behaviour
