Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Commons Pool 2.0 released
Date Mon, 11 Nov 2013 15:25:15 GMT
The Apache Commons Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Commons Pool 2.0.

The Apache Commons Pool open source software library provides an
object-pooling API and a number of object pool implementations.

Version 2 of Apache Commons Pool contains a completely re-written
pooling implementation compared to the 1.x series. In addition to
significant performance and scalability improvements - particularly
under highly concurrent loads, version 2 includes robust instance
tracking and pool monitoring. Version 2 requires JDK level 1.6 or above.

Source and binary distributions are available for download from the
Apache Commons download site:

When downloading, please verify signatures using the KEYS file available
at the above location when downloading the release.

Version 2.0 is not backwards compatible with earlier releases. There
have been numerous API changes to support new features as well as to
clarify behaviour and improve consistency across the API. Therefore, to
support side-by-side usage of 2.x and earlier versions, the packaging of
version 2.0 has been changed to org.apache.commons.pool2.

Full details of all the changes in 2.0 can be found in the changelog:
