Subject [VOTE] Apache POI 3.10.1 release
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2014 00:07:51 GMT

I prepared artifacts for the release of Apache POI 3.10.1, a bugfix release of the 3.10 branch.
It contains 2 important fixes about XML entity handling in OOXML parsers. Also the recommended
(and shipped) version of xmlbeans.jar was upgraded from 2.3 to 2.6.


Please vote to release the artifacts. Please take especially care, that they can work as drop-in
replacements for 3.10-FINAL.

I tried the release, looks good to me. All tests pass. ASC files verify and MD5/SHA1 are correct.
Docs look fine.

I did a test with Solr 4.9: I replaced the JAR files of POI-3.10-beta2 (shipped with Solr
4.9) by those new ones (drop-in replacement), which worked without any problems. The entity
expansion fixes are working correctly!
While doing those test with my first build (RC1), I recognized that there were more XML parsers
used, not respecting the new sensible defaults used for parsing, so I committed some more
fixes and built a new RC (RC2).

Here is my +1 to release the above artifacts and deploy to Maven Central,

P.S.: The vote keeps open for 72hrs, 2014-08-17, 0:00 UTC, planned release announcement date
is Monday, 2014-08-18.
