Subject [ANNOUNCE] VelocityTools 1.4
Date Tue, 27 Nov 2007 23:59:42 GMT
The Apache Velocity Team announces the immediate availability of the
of Apache VelocityTools 1.4.

Downloads are available here:
  http://velocity.apache.org/download.cgi#tools

Apache VelocityTools is a supplemental library for the Apache Velocity
templating engine.  VelocityTools provides powerful utilities for
rapidly developing Velocity templates that are easy to maintain and
enhance.  Key features are the VelocityViewServlet for adding Velocity
support to your webapps and a wide variety of Tools to simplify
everything from Struts integration to date formatting.

There have been many important bug fixes since the 1.3 release and a
handful of new features. While important, the overall slate of changes
is small compared to previous releases due to the rapid progress of
the upcoming 2.0 version.  This is expected to be the last release of
the 1.x series as 2.0 is both superior and backwards compatible.

New features in 1.4 include more configurability for NumberTool and DateTool,
the new ComparisonDateTool, and new abilities for EscapeTool and LinkTool.
For a full listing of new features and bug fixes please see the change log:
