Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Commons Codec 1.8 Released
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2013 01:43:53 GMT
The Commons Codec team is pleased to announce the commons-codec 1.8 release!

The codec package contains simple encoder and decoders for various formats
such as Base64 and Hexadecimal. In addition to these widely used encoders
and decoders, the codec package also maintains a collection of phonetic
encoding utilities.

Commons Codec 1.8 requires a minimum of Java 1.6.

Changes in this version include:

New features:
o CODEC-168:  Add DigestUtils.updateDigest(MessageDigest, InputStream).
Thanks to Daniel Cassidy.
o CODEC-167:  Add JUnit to test our decode with pad character in the middle.
o CODEC-161:  Add Match Rating Approach (MRA) phonetic algorithm encoder.
Thanks to crice.

Fixed Bugs:
o CODEC-163:  ColognePhonetic encoder unnecessarily creates many char
arrays on every loop run. Thanks to leo141.
o CODEC-160:  Base64.encodeBase64URLSafeString doesn't add padding
characters at the end.


Have fun!
-The Commons Codec team
