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!

http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/codec/


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 
utilities.

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
   Kalnichevski.

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
   Kalnichevski.

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.

   Changes:

o This version is relesed under the Apache License 2.0 , please see
   LICENSE.txt. Previous versions were released under the Apache License
   1.1.

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

Have fun!
-The commons-codec team
