Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-530) AbstractFileConfiguration.getProperty(String key) locking causes thread halt
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2013 19:45:21 GMT


Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-530:

Unfortunately, there is not yet a concrete release schedule. There are still some important
points open which need to be fixed before a release.

Because of all these incompatible changes (parts of the API have been completely redesigned)
it certainly makes sense to get out some alpha or beta releases first to get feedback from
the community.

occurs in a background thread that updates the in-memory map (perhaps by using CopyOnWrite
