It is cool to see each AspectJ release come out. I also thought it was REALLY cool how the people that produced bug reports were acknowledged. Isn’t open source great?
We are pleased to announce that AspectJ-1.2.1 is now available from the download page at http://eclipse.org/aspectj or directly from http://download.eclipse.org/technology/ajdt/aspectj-1.2.1.jar
we’ve also set up a download mirror at:
AspectJ 1.2.1 contains an updated version of the JDT Java compiler, a number of tools improvements, runtime performance optimisations, the ability to split declare error/warning messages across several lines using
the “+” operator, and numerous bug fixes. Detailed release notes for all these updates and more are available at:
Patches and contributions were submitted by Martin Lippert, Laurie Hendren, George Harley, Matthew Webster, and Juergen Graf. Discussions and interactions with the abc compiler team also led to several of the improvements contained in the 1.2.1 release. We are always very grateful for these contributions that help improve the compiler and supporting tools.
Easy to reproduce bugs were submitted by Doug Orleans, Ron DiFrango, Ron Bodkin, Antti Karanta, Per Hustad, Oege de Moor, Ganesh Sittampalam, Luzius Meisser, Andriy Palamarchuk, Helmet Zechmann, Matt Chapman, Rohith Ajjampur, Adrian Powell, Marius Marin, Takao Nakaguchi, Torsten Lull, Lasse Nielsen, Pavel Avgustinov, Macneil Shonle, Hristo Stoyanov, and David Pearce. We recognize the difficulty of producing clear minimal test cases from bugs found in large systems and appreciate the work that goes into these reports.
Thanks and stay in touch,
The AspectJ Team
