Subject Re: Struts 1.0 Released - Looking forward to 1.1!!!!!!!
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2001 20:58:48 GMT
I hear what you are saying Niall, but again, I'd sooner introduce a new tag
like 'html2' before I'd change existing tags/property names - especially now
that struts 1.0 is out and feels "more formally defined" if you know what I
mean.  Too bad there was no way to label something 'depcrecated' in a
taglib!  Imagine seeing output to System.err stating that a tag has been
deprecated - pretty cool I think...
