Thanks, Oliver.  Just FYI, I will be checking in more fixes and  
enhancements over the next several weeks and will need another release  
in another month or two.

Here is a list of what I'm working on:
Direct support for schema validation in XMLConfiguration (completed)
Support for adding EntityResolvers to XMLConfiguration (completed)
Support for Apache XML Commons CatalogResolver - xml-resolver package  
Allow a default EntityResolver to be added to  
DefaultConfigurationBuilder's configuration (completed)
Allow the EntityResolver configured in DefaultConfigurationBuilder to  
default to the CatalogResolver (completed)
I've been requested to have CombinedConfiguration be able to return  
the list of configuration names in a List that is the same order as  
When disableDelimiterParsing is set to true  
xmlConfig.setProperty("path", "a,b,c,d") is adding a backslash before  
each comma. Need to investigate and fix.
Add a ReloadingStrategy that works with files stored in a CMS that is  
accessed via WebDav.
Possibly add "real" WebDAV support to allow files to be versioned when  
stored in the WebDAV repository.
Possibly add support for accessing files via the JSR 170 API.
Possibly refactor all the file access into its own package. Possibly  
either leverage commons vfs or do something simpler.
Go through Jira and look at all the outstanding issues.
Work on the experimental branch.

All the items marked completed I have working on trunk and am  
integrating them into the experimental branch. They should be  
committed in a day or two.
All the items starting with "possibly" I will start a discussion on  
the dev list before doing anything.
