Subject RE: EmoticonsFilter in 2.6.0
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2008 15:20:54 GMT
How about plugins? Is the 2.6 API backward compatible? I remember reading about changes that
would break backward compatibility...

When Maven decided to do a major rewrite for their 2.0 version (breaking backward compatibility)
they maintained a table with an entry for each contributed plugin and the last known (Maven)
compatible version.

That saved a lot of time in testing and choosing new plugins. I wonder if something like that
would be useful to JSPWiki contributed code as well?

then you will probably mean all (Page)Filters listed on ?
