The Apache Commons community is happy to announce the availability of Apache
Commons Lang 3.6.
Apache Commons Lang provides 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.
The most important changes in this release are:
- deprecation of a lot of string/text related methods and classes in favor of
Commons Text (see http://commons.apache.org/text).
- Addition of the Automatic-Module-Name MANIFEST entry for compatibility with
the Java 9 module system.
