Subject [ANNOUNCE] Struts Menu 2.0 Released!
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2003 11:07:39 GMT
This release is a significant refactoring of the 1.x codebase.  The
source 
and site is now built using Maven.  Menus can now be defined using
Velocity 
templates and support has been added for looking up dynamic values.
This 
means that if you have ${variableName} in your menu-config.xml (in a
link), 
the tag library will look in all scopes for a variable with the name 
"variableName".  The example app has been updated to improve
documentation.

IMO, the Velocity templates is huge because it means "if it's possible
with 
HTML" - it's possible with Struts Menu.

Changes (http://struts-menu.sourceforge.net/changes-report.html):

- Renamed package structure to net.sf.navigator.
- Added support for using Struts' actions and forwards for links in 
  menu-config.xml. 	
- Added support for using dynamic variables in menu-config.xml. 	
- Updated build process to use Maven for building/deploying.
- Refactored to use Velocity and allow dynamic variable substitution.
