                           Apache Commons Lang
                               Version 3.5
                              Release Notes


INTRODUCTION:

This document contains the release notes for the 3.5 version of
Apache Commons Lang as well as a history all changes in the Commons Lang 3.x
release line. Commons Lang is a set of utility functions and reusable
components that should be of use in any Java environment. Commons Lang 3.5 at
least requires Java 6.0.

For the advice on upgrading from 2.x to 3.x, see the following page:

    http://commons.apache.org/lang/article3_0.html

HIGHLIGHTS
==========

Some of the highlights in this release include:

o Added Java 9 detection to org.apache.commons.lang3.SystemUtils.
o Support for shifting and swapping elements in
    org.apache.commons.lang3.ArrayUtils.
o New methods for generating random strings from different character classes
    including alphabetic, alpha-numeric and ASCII added to
    org.apache.commons.lang3.RandomStringUtils.
o Numerous extensions to org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils including
    null safe compare variants, more remove and replace variants, rotation and
    truncation.
o Added org.apache.commons.lang3.ThreadUtils - a utility class to work with
    instances of java.lang.Thread and java.lang.ThreadGroup.
o Added annotations @EqualsExclude, @HashCodeExclude and @ToStringEclude to
    mark fields which should be ignored by the reflective builders in the
    org.apache.commons.lang3.builder package.
o Support for various modify and retrieve value use cases added to the classes
    in org.apache.commons.lang3.mutable.

COMPATIBILITY
=============

Apache Commons Lang 3.5 is binary compatible with the 3.4 release. Users
should not experience any problems when upgrading vom 3.4 to 3.5.

There has been an addition to the org.apache.commons.lang3.time.DatePrinter
interface:

o Added method 'public boolean parse(java.lang.String, java.text.ParsePosition,
    java.util.Calendar)'
o Added method 'public java.lang.Appendable format(long, java.lang.Appendable)'
o Added method 'public java.lang.Appendable format(java.util.Date,
    java.lang.Appendable)'
o Added method 'public java.lang.Appendable format(java.util.Calendar,
    java.lang.Appendable)'

For this reason 3.5 is not strictly source compatible to 3.4. Since the
DatePrinter interface is not meant to be implemented by clients, this
change it not considered to cause any problems.

JAVA 9 SUPPORT
==============

Java 9 introduces a new version-string scheme. Details of this new scheme are
documented in JEP-223 (http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/223). In order to support
JEP-223 two classes had to be changed:

o org.apache.commons.lang3.JavaVersion
    deprecated enum constant JAVA_1_9
    introduced enum constant JAVA_9

o org.apache.commons.lang3.SystemUtils
    deprecated constant IS_JAVA_1_9
    introduced constant IS_JAVA_9

For more information see LANG-1197
(https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1197). All other APIs are expected
to work with Java 9.

BUILDING ON JAVA 9
==================

Java 8 introduced the Unicode Consortium's Common Locale Data Repository as
alternative source for locale data. Java 9 will use the CLDR provider as
default provider for locale data (see http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/252). This
causes an number of locale-sensitive test in Commons Lang to fail. In order
to build Commons Lang 3.5 on Java 9, the locale provider has to be set to
'JRE':

    mvn -Djava.locale.providers=JRE clean install

We are currently investigating ways to support building on Java 9 without
further configuration. For more information see:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1265

                        Release Notes for version 3.4


COMPATIBILITY
=============

Commons Lang 3.4 is fully binary compatible to the last release and can
therefore be used as a drop in replacement for 3.3.2. Note that the value of
org.apache.commons.lang3.time.DurationFormatUtils.ISO_EXTENDED_FORMAT_PATTERN
has changed, which may affect clients using the constant. Furthermore the
constant is used internally in
o DurationFormatUtils.formatDurationISO(long)
o DurationFormatUtils.formatPeriodISO(long, long)

                        Release Notes for version 3.2

COMPATIBILITY WITH 3.1
========================

This release introduces backwards incompatible changes in 
org.apache.commons.lang3.time.FastDateFormat:
o Method 'protected java.util.List parsePattern()' has been removed
o Method 'protected java.lang.String parseToken(java.lang.String, int[])' has
  been removed
o Method 'protected org.apache.commons.lang3.time.FastDateFormat$NumberRule
  selectNumberRule(int, int)' has been removed

These changes were the result of [LANG-462]. It is assumed that this change 
will not break clients as Charles Honton pointed out on 25/Jan/12:
"
 1. Methods "FastDateFormat$NumberRule selectNumberRule(int, int)" and 
    "List<Rule> parsePattern()" couldn't have been overridden because
    NumberRule and Rule were private to FastDateFormat.
 2. Due to the factory pattern used, it's unlikely other two methods would have 
    been overridden.
 3. The four methods are highly implementation specific. I consider it a 
    mistake that the methods were exposed.
"
For more information see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-462.
