Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Commons IO 1.1 released
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2005 23:25:14 GMT
The Commons IO team is pleased to announce the release of commons-io-1.1.

Commons IO is a library of utility, file filter, endian and stream classes
that aim to make working with IO much more pleasant. Many of these classes
probably should be in the JDK itself.

This release fixes all open bugs, and adds various enhancements, including:
- FilenameUtils - A static utility class for working with filenames 
without File objects
- FileSystemUtils - A static utility class that allows you to get the 
free space on a drive
- IOUtils/FileUtils - read and write files line by line into a List
- WildcardFilter - A new filter that can match using wildcard file names

This release is binary and source compatible with 1.0 according to our 
There are some minor semantic changes caused by bug fixes which should not
affect the vast majority of 1.0 users - please check the release notes 
for full details.
To simplify the API, there has also been a deprecation - please check 
the release notes.
We recommend all users of commons-io-1.0 upgrade to 1.1 to pickup the 
numerous bugs fixes.
