<h1>Apache Axis2 @axisVersion@ Release Notes</h1>
<h2>About this version</h2>
1.5.1 is a maintenance release to fix several key problems in
the 1.5 release.
<h2>Changes since 1.5</h2>
<li>Fix for the dreaded "CLOSE_WAIT" problem (JIRA issues 935, 2883, etc). We now share an instance of HTTPClient across each ConfigurationContext (i.e. each Axis2 server or ServiceClient) - connection reuse is now automatic. This means <b>the REUSE_HTTP_CLIENT flag is no longer necessary or useful, nor is creating your own MultithreadedHttpConnectionManager</b>.</li>
<li>Transport deployer is now actually functional, and getListenerManager() in ConfigurationContext now creates a new LM if there isn't one already.</li>
<li>Fix for AXIS2-4034, module versions now support real versions like "1.5.1"</li>
<li>NPE problem (see AXIS2-4114) fixed in MessageContext while retrieving policy.</li>
<h4>Known Issues and Limitations in the @axisVersion@ Release:</h4>
<p><i>Please see JIRA</i></p>
<h2>About Axis2</h2>
<p>Apache Axis2 is a complete re-design and re-write of the widely used
Apache Axis engine and is a more efficient, more scalable, more modular
and more XML-oriented Web services framework. It is carefully designed to
support the easy addition of plug-in "modules" that extend its
functionality for features such as security and reliability.</p>
<p>Modules supporting WS-Security/Secure-Conversation (Apache Rampart),
WS-Trust (Apache Rahas), WS-Reliable Messaging (Apache Sandesha) and
WS-Eventing (Apache Savan) are available via the Apache Web Services
project. Please see the individual subproject sites for further information.</p>
<p>We are striving for a simple and happy first time user experience as well as a
satisfying experienced user experience with this release. We welcome any
