Subject [ANNOUCE] Apache Velocity Engine 2.2 Released
Date Sun, 02 Feb 2020 22:54:34 GMT
The Apache Velocity community is pleased to announce the release of 
Apache Velocity Engine 2.2. 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.

Main changes in this release:

* New runtime.log.track_locations debugging configuration flag which 
displays the VTL stack trace in the logs in cases of errors, and 
populates slf4j MDC tags about position in VTL templates.

* New example of how to build a customized VTL parser where the '#', 
'$', '*' and '@' characters can be replaced by alternate characters.

* New backward compatibility flags to mimic 1.7.x event handlers and 
velicomacros behaviors.
