Subject [ANN] Apache Forrest 0.5.1 released
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2003 03:24:18 GMT
The Forrest team is pleased to announce the release of
Apache Forrest 0.5.1.  The release is available at

Forrest ( is an XML standards-oriented
project documentation framework built on Apache Cocoon, providing XSLT
stylesheets and schemas, images and other resources. Forrest uses these
to render the XML source content into a website via command-line, robot
(see, or a dynamic web application.


Forrest 0.5.1 is a bugfix release over 0.5.  Most notably, it comes with an
updated Cocoon (2.1.2) which fixes a bug in the command-line where certain
pages in a site weren't rendered (FOR-66).  Other bugfixes include:

 - Added obfuscate-mail-links skinconf.xml option, on by default  (FOR-67)
 - Fix forrest-site tables bug that broke Opera  (FOR-65)
 - Fixed URLs for comma-separated bug keys in status.xml
 - In skinconf.xml, made project-description optional to keep compatibility
   with 0.4.
 - forrest.antproxy.xml script now properly fails when Cocoon fails
 - Fix bugs in forrest.bat|sh scripts encountered when used in odd environments
   (perl and Win9x).  (FOR-47, FOR-48)
 - The 'forrest' command no longer sources /etc/antrc and ~/.antrc, which
   solves problems on some *nix distributions.
