The Apache Commons team is pleased to announce the availability of Commons Configuration 1.10.

The Commons Configuration software library provides a generic configuration interface which enables an application to read configuration data from a variety of sources, e.g. properties files, XML documents, JDBC datasources and many more. More information can be found at the Configuration main site at

The new release contains a couple of bug fixes and back ports of new features from the 2.0 branch. It is binary compatible with the previous version. The minimum required JDK version is 1.5.

A full list of changes since the previous release can be found in the release notes or in the changes report at

Apache Commons Configuration is available in either binary or source form from the Configuration downloads page:
