Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Velocity Engine 2.0
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2017 10:52:22 GMT
The Apache Velocity community is pleased to announce the release of 
Apache Velocity Engine 2.0. The release is available for download at:

Apache Velocity is well-known in the Java field as a lightweight, 
easy-to-use templating library for creating dynamic web sites and 
performing other text-generation tasks. It relies on the Velocity 
Template Language (VTL) which is aimed at ease-of-use and simplicity.

This major release introduces several consistent changes and new 
features, including:

- Switch to the SLF4J logging facade.
- Configurable whitespace gobbling, that lets template writers indent 
their templates without polluting the output.
- VTL Method arguments and array subscripts can now be arithmetic 
- Configurable method arguments conversion handler, which by default 
handles automatic conversions between booleans, numbers, strings and enums.
- Significant reduction of the memory consumption.
- JSR-223 Scripting Engine implementation.
- Made Velocity OSGi-ready.
