Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Commons Codec 1.3 Released
Date Thu, 22 Jul 2004 00:07:30 GMT

The commons-codec team is pleased to announce the Codec 1.3 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 

Changes in this version include:

   New Features:

o BinaryCodec: Encodes and decodes binary to and from Strings of 0s and
   1s. Issue: 27813. Thanks to Alex Karasulu.

o QuotedPrintableCodec: Codec for RFC 1521 MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail
   Extensions) Part One. Rules #3, #4, and #5 of the quoted-printable spec
   are not implemented yet. See also issue 27789. Issue: 26617. Thanks to Oleg

o BCodec: Identical to the Base64 encoding defined by RFC 1521 and allows
   a character set to be specified. Issue: 26617. Thanks to Oleg Kalnichevski.

o QCodec: Similar to the Quoted-Printable content-transfer-encoding  defined
   in RFC 1521 and designed to allow text containing mostly ASCII characters
   to be decipherable on an ASCII terminal without decoding. Issue: 26617.
   Thanks to Oleg Kalnichevski.

o Soundex: Implemented the DIFFERENCE algorithm. Issue: 25243. Thanks to
   Matthew Inger.

o RefinedSoundex: Implemented the DIFFERENCE algorithm. Issue: 25243. Thanks
   to Matthew Inger.

   Fixed bugs:

o The default URL encoding logic was broken. Issue: 25995. Thanks to Oleg

o Base64 chunked encoding not compliant with RFC 2045 section 2.1 CRLF.
   Issue: 27781. Thanks to Gary D. Gregory.

o Hex converts illegal characters to 255. Issue: 28455.

o Metaphone now correctly handles a silent B in a word that ends in MB.
   "COMB" is encoded as "KM", before this fix "COMB" was encoded as "KMB".
   Issue: 28457.

o Added missing tags in Javadoc comments.

o General Javadoc improvements.


o This version is relesed under the Apache License 2.0 , please see
   LICENSE.txt. Previous versions were released under the Apache License

o The Board recommendation to remove Javadoc author tags has been
   implemented. All author tags are now "Apache Software Foundation".

Have fun!
