[ANNOUNCE] Velocity Engine 2.0 RC9 test build available

Claude Brisson-2
A new test build of Velocity Engine 2.0 is available (RC9).

No determination as to the quality ('alpha,' 'beta,' or 'GA') of
Velocity Engine 2.0 has been made, and at this time it is simply a "test
build". We welcome any comments you may have, and will take all feedback
into account if a quality vote is called for this build.

Release notes:

  *
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/velocity/velocity-engine/2.0/release-notes.html 


Distribution:

  * https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/velocity/velocity-engine/2.0/

Maven 2 staging repository:

  *
https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/orgapachevelocity-1020/

A vote regarding the quality of this test build will be initiated within
the next couple of days.

Release Candidates changelog:

   RC1: initial candidate
   RC2: bugfixes
   RC3: review SLF4J Logger names (instead of a single logger named
"Velocity", have a hierarchy of loggers with a base of
'org.apache.velocity')
   RC4: minor fixes
   RC5:
    * the default encoding is now UTF-8 (and not the platform default)
    * commons-collections is not any more a compilation dependency
    * commons-lang3 dependency is not any more shaded
    * the configuration API doesn't reference ExtProperties
    * the events API has been optimized and reviewed: all events do
receive the current Context
    * there has been a few optimizations in ASTStringLiteral rendering
   RC6: mostly code cleaning and build process optimization ; assembly
module has been dropped
   RC7: still a lot of core cleanups and reviews, plus:
    * new strategy for reference boolean evaluation
    * allow expressions inside [ ] : $foo[$bar + 1]
   RC8: vararg methods bugfix
   RC9: reenginering of the DataSourceResourceLoader

Regards,

   Claude

I should really know the answer to this question already, but I don't,
ant it's not covered in the Release Notes:

Is Velocity 2.0 backward-compatible with templates written for 1.x?
Should I be able to simply replace e.g. Velocity 1.7 with 2.0 and
expect it to work with very few changes? The changelog seems to
indicate that "most things" ought to work right away, but I thought
I'd ask.

If that's the expectation, then I'll throw 2.0 into my testing
environment immediately and see what happens.

Thanks,

Hi, Christopher.

Did you see this page?

    http://velocity.apache.org/engine/devel/upgrading.html

Basically, you'll of course have to upgrade dependencies, add two lines
in the configuration to ensure the maximum backward compatibility, and
otherwise than that it should work seamlessly. Your feedback would be
most appreciated.
