Apache Velocity is well-known in the Java field as a lightweight, easy-to-use templating library for creating dynamic web sites and performing other text-generation tasks. It relies on the Velocity Template Language (VTL) which is aimed at ease-of-use and simplicity.

This major release introduces several consistent changes and new features, including:

- Switch to the SLF4J logging facade.
- Configurable whitespace gobbling, that lets template writers indent their templates without polluting the output. - VTL Method arguments and array subscripts can now be arithmetic expressions. - Configurable method arguments conversion handler, which by default handles automatic conversions between booleans, numbers, strings and enums.
- Significant reduction of the memory consumption.
- JSR-223 Scripting Engine implementation.
- Made Velocity OSGi-ready.
