Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Commons Codec 1.5 is now available
Date Tue, 29 Mar 2011 14:18:59 GMT
The Commons Codec team is pleased to announce the commons-codec-1.5 release!

The codec package contains simple encoder and decoders for various formats
such as Base64 and Hexadecimal.  In addition to thes widely used encoders
and decoders, the codec package also maintains acollection of phonetic
encoding utilities.

Changes in this version include:

New features:
o Add test(s) to check that encodeBase64() does not chunk output.  Issue:
CODEC-93. Thanks to sebb.
o ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when doing multiple reads() on encoding
Base64InputStream.  Issue: CODEC-105. Thanks to zak.
o Add the Cologne Phonetic to codec.lang.  Issue: CODEC-106. Thanks to
o isn't final but should
be.  Issue: CODEC-111. Thanks to ggregory.
o Base64.encodeBase64(byte[] binaryData, boolean isChunked, boolean urlSafe,
int maxResultSize) throws IAE for valid maxResultSize if isChunked is
false.  Issue: CODEC-112. Thanks to sebb.
o org.apache.commons.codec.language.RefinedSoundex.US_ENGLISH_MAPPING should
be package protected MALICIOUS_CODE.  Issue: CODEC-113. Thanks to ggregory.
o org.apache.commons.codec.language.Soundex.US_ENGLISH_MAPPING should be
package protected MALICIOUS_CODE.  Issue: CODEC-114. Thanks to ggregory.
o DoubleMetaphone.maxCodeLen should probably be private.  Issue: CODEC-115.
Thanks to sebb.
o Split Caverphone class into two classes for Caverphone 1.0 and 2.0.
Issue: CODEC-118. Thanks to ggregory.

Fixed Bugs:
o new Base64().encode() appends a CRLF, and chunks results into 76 character
lines.  Issue: CODEC-89.
o Many test cases use getBytes() which uses the default platform encoding so
tests may fail on some platforms.  Issue: CODEC-92.
o Base64 default constructor behaviour changed to enable chunking in 1.4.
Issue: CODEC-97. Thanks to mjryall.
o Base64.encodeBase64String() shouldn't chunk.  Issue: CODEC-99. Thanks to
o Base64InputStream#read(byte[]) incorrectly returns 0 at end of any stream
which is multiple of 3 bytes long.  Issue: CODEC-101. Thanks to balusc.
o Typo in DecoderException message thrown from Hex.decodeHex.  Issue:
CODEC-103. Thanks to gnuf.
o Caverphone encodes names starting and ending with "mb" incorrectly.
Issue: CODEC-117. Thanks to ggregory.

o Remove deprecated package private method Base64.discardWhitespace(byte[])
Issue: CODEC-116. Thanks to ggregory.

Have fun!
