Subject [VOTE] Release Regexp 1.5
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2007 02:12:15 GMT
Hi All,

With 5 recent bug fixes [1], one *major* speed improvement for {m,n} closures 
[2], with other various optimizations to compiler and runtime, and with previous 
release published sometime back in 2005 [3], now is the best, or at the very 
least, really good time to to cut next, 1.5 release of the venerable Jakarta 
Regexp package.

Please try out current svn (r517970) version [4] and test for any regressions,
and vote for a release. Regexp test suite can be run by issuing 'ant test' in 
the checkout directory, and does not take even 3 seconds to complete. 
Interactive testing can be done by using applet version [5].

The only known incompatibility with Regexp 1.4 is that pre-compiled RE programs 
created with 'recompile' utility [6] for patterns containing reluctant closures 
are not compatible with trunk. But, that should not be a problem since they did 
not work correctly before anyway [7].

My vote for the release is +1.
