Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache Shale 1.0.4 released
Date Tue, 23 Jan 2007 18:22:44 GMT
The Apache Shale team is pleased to announce the release of Shale
Framework version 1.0.4. The Apache Shale Framework is a modern web
application framework offering a set of loosely coupled services,
fundamentally based on JavaServer Faces, which may be combined as
needed to meet particular application requirements.

Version 1.0.4 can be downloaded from the following page:

 http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/shale/

A final vote on quality has yet to take place for this release. We
intend to vote on the quality of each module separately where
necessary. For example, the shale-tiles module is likely to receive a
grade no higher than "Beta" because it relies on a snapshot of the
as-yet unreleased Standalone Tiles package.

This release includes the following significant new features and changes:

 * The Shale framework now contains six new modules, allowing
application developers greater freedom over choosing the bits they
need. The new modules are shale-application, shale-dialog,
shale-dialog-basic, shale-dialog-scxml, shale-validator and
shale-view. See the version 1.0.4 website for documentation on all
modules:

 http://shale.apache.org/1.0.4/

 * Several outstanding JIRA issues focusing on functional problems
with the implementation of the Dialog feature have been addressed
along with the refactoring in 1.0.4.

 * shale-clay has seen numerous improvements to the non-validating
markup parser, template encoding, template namespace support, as well
as JSF 1.2 basic support for Clay managed views and reduced inner
dependencies for Servlet 2.3 compatibility.

 * It is now possible to build unit tests, using the shale-test
module, that cater to JSF 1.2 APIs.

Additionally, this version includes a substantial number of bugfixes
and enhancements, full details can be found in the release notes:

Most of the framework APIs are reasonably stable, please see the
following web page for more details:
