Thanks Richard and others for the release of uimaFIT 2!

Here are a few shell commands to ease the migration to version 2:

BTW, what happened to DocumentAnnotation in UIMA 2.4?

Best, Renaud

> The Apache UIMA team is pleased to announce the release of
>   Apache uimaFIT, version 2.0.0 (initial Apache release)
> Apache uimaFIT is a library that facilitates the building of
> Apache UIMA components, the programmatic use of Apache UIMA
> analysis pipelines, and their testing.
> uimaFIT employs Java annotations to integrate UIMA meta data
> directly into the source code, allowing for less lines of code
> and better refactorability then traditional, XML descriptor-based
> UIMA projects. It is capable of automatically detecting meta data,
> e.g. type system information, from the classpath. Convenience
> methods are provided for constructing components, pipelines,
> and for accessing annotations.
> This is the first Apache release of the project previously known
> simply as "uimaFIT".
> The major changes in this release are:
>   * Migration to Apache Foundation as part of the Apache UIMA project
>   * New Maven coordinates
>     (groupId: org.apache.uima; artifactId: uimafit-core)
>   * New uimaFIT Maven plugin for automatically generating uimaFIT
>     meta data in component classes and UIMA descriptors from
>     uimaFIT-annotated component classes
>   * New module for backwards compatibility with uimaFIT 1.4.x-based
>     components
>   * Consolidated documentation in HTML and PDF format
>   * Moved CPE support to separate dependency
>     (groupId: org.apache.uima; artifactId: uimafit-cpe)
>   * Improved component life-cycle handling
>   * New support for setting multi-valued parameters with simple single
>     values (no need to wrap them in a collection or array anymore)
>   * Improved support for external resources, including support for
>     multi-valued external resources
> Note on compatibility and migration:
> Apache uimaFIT 2.0.0 is not a drop-in replacement for uimaFIT 1.4.x,
> although, it was tried to keep the migration effort minimal. Please
> refer to the migration guide for all the details on incompatible
> changes between uimaFIT 1.4.0 and Apache uimaFIT 2.0.0:
>   http://uima.apache.org/d/uimafit-2.0.0/tools.uimafit.book.html#d5e617
> Additionally, there have been more bug fixes and minor improvements.
> For a full list of the changes, please refer to Jira:
>   http://uima.apache.org/d/uimafit-2.0.0/issuesFixed/jira-report.html
