Apache Commons Text
Version 1.0-beta-1
Release Notes
This document contains the release notes for the 1.0-beta-1 version of Apache
Commons Text. Commons Text is a set of utility functions and reusable components
for the purpose of processing and manipulating text that should be of use in a
Java environment.
Apache Commons Text is a library focused on algorithms working on strings.
At our time of release our build succeeds with Java 9-ea build 153, and we
believe all of our features to be Java 9 compatible.

that it is consistent with BiFunction. Thanks to Jonathan Baker.
o TEXT-6: Allow extra information (e.g. Levenshtein threshold) to be stored
