Most instances of StringBuffer were replaced with StringBuilder. Some synchronization issues

Does not mention that the new release uses a new package name and
requires source updates to use.
Ditto the Maven changes.

changes.xml has not been updated with a description of the release.
Also, the date will need to be changed at some point.

I still think we should have tried to maintain binary compatibility -
which I think would have been possible.
However, assuming that the compatibility break is what the majority
wants, this needs to be made very obvious, and there should be upgrade
notes describing how to perform the change.

IMO there should be some RELEASE_NOTES in the source and binary archives.

The source archive should probably exclude the DOAP.
