Subject [compress] nearing 1.13 release, backwards incompatible change(?)
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2016 07:28:11 GMT

I've managed to build japicmp reports for COMPRESS, the full site of the
current master is at

If you look at
you'll see a few strange things. Some new methods and classes are
flagged as binary incompatible because they throw checked
exceptions. This seems to be japicmp, not a real issue with the code.

But there is one binary incompatible change (a serialization
incompatibility): UnsupportedZipFeatureException has a new
serialVersionUID. This is because it really changed its serialization
from not being serializable at all to being serializable (the old code
had non-transient non-serializable fields).

I think this is acceptable.

Could you please look over the reports and at the current code base to
determine whether there is anything that needs to get fixed before
cutting a release?
