Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Commons Configuration 2.0-beta1 Released
Date Sat, 20 Jun 2015 18:40:27 GMT
The Apache Commons Team is pleased to announce the availability of
Apache Commons Configuration 2.0-beta1.

The Commons Configuration software library provides a generic
configuration interface which enables an application to read
configuration data from a variety of sources.

This is the first beta release for version 2.0 of Commons
Configuration after two alpha releases. There have not been many changes
since the last alpha release except for an obsolete interface which has
been removed. Moving to beta indicates that we are getting closer to the
final release, but incompatible changes can still not be excluded.

Version 2 is a major redesign of the Configuration API.
It breaks compatibility in many areas and, therefore, is not a drop-in
replacement for Commons Configuration 1.x. The main purpose of this
series of alpha and beta releases is to gather feedback from the
community about the reworked API. IT IS NOT YET PRODUCTION READY. There
may still be some changes on the public API.

A full list of all changes can be found in the release notes at

There is also an upgrade guide available for users of version 1.x at

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. (Note: Because this
is a beta version, we decided that it will not be distributed to Maven
