WW-1711 The select tag works properly with non-string values.
WW-1731 The Code Behind and Spring plugins are included in the distribution.
Backward compatibility issues with prior development release
The experimental "new API" has been removed, in favor of continued research in the 2.1.x series.
The home page for the Core Guide was been reorganized.
Several "missing" pages on extending the framework have been identified, and are listed on the Contributors Guide page, awaiting volunteers.
The OGNL dependency is advanced to version 2.6.11.
The XWork dependency is advanced to version 2.0.1.
The Codebehind and Spring plugin JARs are now bundled with the distribution, as originally intended.
In the documentation, several references to code "snippets" in the Interceptor area have been fixed.
Experimental Features and Plugins
Please help us test these brave new features. Feedback appreciated!
Java 1.4 support: We are backporting the core Struts and XWork JARs, and, as a courtesy, bundling them with the distribution. However, Struts 2 is being coded for Java 5 and backward compatibility is not assured.
Portlets: Automatic portlet support allows portal and servlet deployments with no code changes (WW-1645@S2jira).
AJAX Theme: AJAX tags look and feel just like standard Struts tags but provide greater interactivity and flexibility. The AJAX theme is backed by the popular Dojo Toolkit (WW-1609).
