<title>Upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1</title>

<!-- ================================================== -->
<section name="Upgrading from 1.0 to 1.1">
<p>CLI 1.1 is a bugfix release of CLI. The following changes notable API changes were made: </p>
<li>The Parser abstract class has two additional parse methods that take a Properties parameter. </li>
<li>The HelpFormatter class had publicly accessible fields. These should now be accessed via
get/set methods and the public fields are deprecated. </li>
<li>The Option class addValue(String) method now throws UnsupportedOperationException. </li>
<li>OptionValidator is a newly added class. </li>
<li>Option's now have equals(Object) and hashCode() methods. </li>
<li>The Option class also received two new methods, setDescription(String) and hasValueSeparator();boolean. </li>
<p>The jar should be API backwards compatible, though if you were calling addValue(String) then you won't be happy. Please
let us know your use case if that is so. </p>
