Subject Status of Commons Compress
Date Fri, 24 Apr 2009 21:37:40 GMT
I need to add tar file reading capability into an app I'm writing, and 
so I'm wondering what the current status of Commons Compress is.  The 
project's page is rather sparse.  Nevertheless, I did glean that it has 
no releases yet.  So I was wondering:

1) Anyone have an idea if there's a release expected anytime soon?

2) If not, what quality level is the SVN code?  Obviously usually 
pre-release implies code of questionable reliability.  But as the code 
in Compress originally comes from Avalon -> Ant -> an older open source 
project, perhaps the code is of sufficient age and maturity that it'd be 
pretty reliable even in its pre-release format.  So, in other words, is 
the SVN code stable enough to use on a production system?

3) If it's not stable enough, what ancestor code would one recommend 
that I use instead?  Ant?
