Subject Cocoon 1.7.3 finally released!
Date Fri, 05 May 2000 23:47:37 GMT

I'm very happy to announce the availability of the 1.7.3 release of the
Cocoon XML Publishing Framework that you can download from


while this version doesn't introduce any great new features, it has many
usability improvements as well as fresh new samples and many bugfixes,
expecially on the i18n, encoding and formatting sections.

It _highly_ suggested that you upgrade your installations to this latest
release and, as usual, it's _highly_ suggested that you upgrade your
"cocoon.properties" along with the installation since many new
configurations were introduced.

Note that no known back incompatibilities were introduced by this

In case, here follows the complete change list:
