The Commons Codec team is pleased to announce the commons-codec-1.5 release!
The codec package contains simple encoder and decoders for
various formats such as Base64 and Hexadecimal. In addition to these
widely used encoders and decoders, the codec package also maintains a
collection of phonetic encoding utilities.
Changes in this version include:
New features:
o Add test(s) to check that encodeBase64() does not chunk output. Issue: CODEC-93. Thanks to sebb.
o ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when doing multiple reads() on encoding Base64InputStream. Issue: CODEC-105. Thanks to zak.
o Add the Cologne Phonetic to codec.lang. Issue: CODEC-106. Thanks to it2mmeyerfa.
o isn't final but should be. Issue: CODEC-111. Thanks to ggregory.
o Base64.encodeBase64(byte[] binaryData, boolean isChunked, boolean urlSafe, int maxResultSize) throws IAE for valid maxResultSize if isChunked is false. Issue: CODEC-112. Thanks to sebb.
o org.apache.commons.codec.language.RefinedSoundex.US_ENGLISH_MAPPING should be package protected MALICIOUS_CODE. Issue: CODEC-113. Thanks to ggregory.
o org.apache.commons.codec.language.Soundex.US_ENGLISH_MAPPING should be package protected MALICIOUS_CODE. Issue: CODEC-114. Thanks to ggregory.
o DoubleMetaphone.maxCodeLen should probably be private. Issue: CODEC-115. Thanks to sebb.
o Split Caverphone class into two classes for Caverphone 1.0 and 2.0. Issue: CODEC-118. Thanks to ggregory.
Fixed Bugs:
o new Base64().encode() appends a CRLF, and chunks results into 76 character lines. Issue: CODEC-89.
o Many test cases use getBytes() which uses the default platform encoding so tests may fail on some platforms. Issue: CODEC-92.
o Base64 default constructor behaviour changed to enable chunking in 1.4. Issue: CODEC-97. Thanks to mjryall.
o Base64.encodeBase64String() shouldn't chunk. Issue: CODEC-99. Thanks to julius.
o Base64InputStream#read(byte[]) incorrectly returns 0 at end of any stream which is multiple of 3 bytes long. Issue: CODEC-101. Thanks to balusc.
o Typo in DecoderException message thrown from Hex.decodeHex. Issue: CODEC-103. Thanks to gnuf.
o Caverphone encodes names starting and ending with "mb" incorrectly. Issue: CODEC-117. Thanks to ggregory.
o Remove deprecated package private method Base64.discardWhitespace(byte[]) Issue: CODEC-116. Thanks to ggregory.
Have fun!
