Subject [jira] Updated: (CONFIGURATION-26) [configuration] Consider returning a concatenation of the list properties with getString()
Date Mon, 08 Jan 2007 20:49:27 GMT


Oliver Heger updated CONFIGURATION-26:

    Fix Version/s: 2.0

Setting fix version to the next major release because this will probably involve an API change.
