Release Notes: New syntax facilitates input validation, cookie validation, use of URL path segments, and session variables. Error messages are now XHTML-compliant for better integration with Cocoon. This release builds against Kawa 1.7, which has numerous improvements of its own since the last release.
Release Notes: Various changes to make debugging easier, common headers/footers are more easily implemented than ever with paste "file.brl", and BRL works with a slightly-patched version of Kawa 1.6.97 (see the Kawa NEWS file for optimizations and features added since 1.6.70, including let-values, define-class, and define-simple-class).
Release Notes: A learnbrl.war file for easy installation with tomcat 4, easier manual installation with better error messages, and numerous minor enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: A bug in a previous release made errors in sitedefs.scm require a restart of the servlet. Such errors can now once again be fixed merely by editing the file. New macros facilitate cleaner conditional code. The manual continues to be expanded and improved.
Release Notes: File/line information now shows in-stack traces for easier debugging. The brl-msft-escape function now handles a larger set of nonstandard characters. Servlet "session" variables are supported if the servlet engine supports them. (JServ does not.)
Release Notes: In the course of making code more readable, performance was accidentally improved by about 20%. New HTTP-related functions have been added, and previously undocumented functions have been documented. The manual has also been made more newbie-friendly with simpler examples.
Release Notes: A regexp notation modeled on Perl 5's is supported, and includes such powerful directives as numeric and nongreedy quantifiers, capturing and non-capturing clustering, POSIX character classes, selective case- and space-insensitivity, backreferences, alternation, backtrack pruning, positive and negative lookahead and lookbehind, and the more basic directives familiar to all regexp users. Bugs introduced in the previous release have been fixed.
Release Notes: A fix for a bug that sometimes suppressed debugging information, support for JServ's "CGI Environment Variables" (important for SSL), and some functions that required one string can take arbitrary numbers of possibly non-string arguments.
Release Notes: Fewer people should have problems with installation now that the kawa-brl package is available and the brl package is available in jar format. The manual also includes a nice search results/column-sorting example.
Release Notes: Clearer error messages were written. Random numbers and cookies are less prone to guessing. Documentation was improved. Several other changes were made.
