Subject RE: Commons Net 1.4.x Service Release?
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2007 09:35:22 GMT
Hello Rory,

thanks for the pointer. Looks like the biggest changes
in commons net 2.0 are
 - Require Java 1.5
 - Use java.util.regex instead of ORO
 - Use JDK SocketFactory
 - Use Maven2 for building
 - Support FTPS

These are interesting, but unfortunately we cannot require
Java 1.5 for our current release cycle. I also think that
even in the future, avoiding java.util.regex and Generics
will be interesting, because there are even modern embedded
JVMs which do not have these - but commons net FTP and 
telnet may be interesting even on a small PDA or Java enabled
cell phone.

I'd thus appreciate if there could be a commons net
1.4.2 or 1.5 service release.
