Subject [ANN] v2 testing released (was Re: Roadmap for v2)
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2005 11:00:19 GMT
Please use v2 instead of v1 from now on. You will need to read the new
dispatcher HowTos to know how to update. Basically we changed the way we
include nuggets. e.g.
-        <url>/feeds/somefeed.xml</url>
+        <jx:import uri="/feeds/somefeed.xml"/>

v1 will be removed very soon.

This issue is not yet 100% resolved but we will be able to solve this
issue with standalone contracts.

Status on that:
I am working on a couple of classes ATM that will allow us to do this. I
have not check anything in yet because it is actually not doing anything
useful yet and personal sandbox.
