The Apache Commons Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Commons Lang 3.3.2.

The Apache Commons Lang open source software library provides a host of
helper utilities for the java.lang API, notably String manipulation
methods, basic numerical methods, object reflection, concurrency, creation
and serialization and System properties. Additionally it contains basic
enhancements to java.util.Date and a series of utilities dedicated to help
with building methods, such as hashCode, toString and equals.

3.3.2 is fully binary compatible to the last release. No client code
changes are required to migrate from version 3.3.1 to 3.3.2. Users of
version 2.x should consult the migration guide on the Commons Lang web
site. The minimum required JDK version for this release is 1.6.

The most notable change is a fix for LANG-992: NumberUtils#isNumber()
returns false for "0.0", "0.4790", et al - a bug that was introduced in
