Release Notes: This release adds methods in the FileUtilities class that allow it to "Collapse" a URL to a representation without any ".." constructs.
Release Notes: This release fixes the getChildURL(URL, String), getParentURL(URL), and exist(URL) FileUtilities methods not playing well with paths containing whitespaces.
Release Notes: This release adds methods for Preferences and FileUtilities to get or store one file path relative to another.
Release Notes: This release add further enhancements to the XML package. Now the ResolverSAXHandler class does not use any Wwing classes anyymore, and the BasicSAXHandler class clearly derives more from this class. Beware that there are some incompatible changes for the BasicSAXHandler class: the keepExceptionStack property has been removed (the exception stack is always kept now). As the exceptions are only of the SAXParseException class, the class only returns a list of these exceptions, which can break previous code relying on this list (previously, the list was of the broader SAXException class).
Release Notes: This release added a simple ResolverSAXHandler class in the xml package, which is a handler without any graphical capacilities. The BasicSAXHandler now derives from it, and it is fully usable from the XMLSAXParser implementation.
Release Notes: It is now ensured that the Preferences root is cleared before serializing preferences when quitting the application.
Release Notes: The methods in PreferencesHelper, NestableURLConnection, and NestableJarURLConnection were changed to take care of the escaped spaces in file names.
Release Notes: This release fixes some methods wrongly directly using File.toURL(), as the toURL() method of the File class may return wrongly escaped results for files with spaces in their path.
Release Notes: This release adds a new "exist" method for URLs and methods on URLs that return null if the URL does not exist. These methods avoid calling the File.exist() method, which returns an exception in a restricted environment (such as Applets or Java Web Start).
Release Notes: This release fixes some tests that were not working anymore due to some missing resource files. It also fixes the systemNodeForPackage method of the NetworkPreferenceFactory class making use of the PreferencesFactory parent class, and thus was incorrectly accessing the registry in Windows. The JFileSelector class now returns the used JFileChooser, allowing users to configure the file chooser. Generics are used in the geom package. The createTransformArc method in the ShapeUtilities method was fixed, which incorrectly used a sub-portion of the arc for the bounding rectangle.
