Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Tapestry 5.7.0 released
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2021 15:02:38 GMT
Tapestry 5.7.0 is a new major version which needs a migration step for
projects using previous versions. To upgrade, update the dependency in your
build configuration (Maven POM, Gradle build script, etc.) – or Download
the new JAR file. Please check the Upgrade Guide section in the release
notes for details. This is a step that only needs to be done once. Please
also review the How to Upgrade instructions before upgrading.

The main new features are:

Partial Java 9+ modules (JPMS) support. It's partial because
module-info.java classes are not provided yet. On the other hand,
Tapestry's JARs don't have split packages anymore, making them easier to be
used with Java 9+ modules. Many classes had to be moved to other packages,
and sometimes even to a different JAR. The migration tool mentioned above
will take care of updating your code so it uses the correct new
fully-qualified class names for the ones that were moved and/or renamed.
TAP5-2641 - Turn the Tapestry subprojects into Java 9+ modules (JPMS)
RESOLVED TAP5-2627 - Fix split packages RESOLVED
TypeCoercer now uses mapped configuration so coercion overrides are done in
an explicit manner.
TAP5-2650 - Change TypeCoercer configuration to MappedConfiguration CLOSED
It's not possible to use the Tapestry request handling framework, specially
the RequestFilter, Dispatcher, Request, Response and
HttpServletRequestFilter classes, without the page framework. These classes
were moved to a new artifact, tapestry-http, which can be used in place of
tapestry-core (which depends on tapestry-http). tapestry-http Servlet
filter class is org.apache.tapestry5.http.TapestryFilter. The original
TapestryFilter, from org.apache.tapestry5, can be used in the same way way
as in past Tapestry versions.

Thanks for everyone involved in getting this new release done!

Happy coding!
