Item Ordering:
Fixes having an issue number are sorted by their number, ascending.
There is no ordering by add/update/fix.
Other fixed issues are added to the end of the list, chronologically.
They eventually become mixed with the numbered issues. (I.e., numbered

<fix>
Treat the <code>&lt;mapped-name&gt;</code> element of a
<code>&lt;env-entry&gt;</code> in web.xml in the same way as the
<code>mappedName</code> element of the equivalent <code>@Resource</code>
annotation. Both now attempt to set the <code>mappedName</code> property
of the resource. (markt)
</fix>
<fix>
Correct the processing of resources with
<code>&lt;injection-target&gt;</code>s defined in web.xml. First look
for a match using JavaBean property names and then, only if a match is
