                                Apache Commons Lang
                                     Version 3.6
                                    Release Notes
      This document contains the release notes for the 3.6 version of
      Apache Commons Lang as well as a history all changes in the Commons Lang 3.x
      release line. Commons Lang is a set of utility functions and reusable
      components that should be of use in any Java environment. Commons Lang 3.6 at
      least requires Java 7.0. Note that this has changed from Commons Lang 3.5, which
      only required Java 1.6.
      For the advice on upgrading from 2.x to 3.x, see the following page:
      Some of the highlights in this release include:
      o The class org.apache.commons.lang3.concurrent.Memoizer is an implementation
          of the Memoizer pattern as shown in
          Goetz, Brian et al. (2006) - Java Concurrency in Practice, p. 108.
      o The class org.apache.commons.lang3.ArchUtils has been added. ArchUtils is
          a utility class for the "os.arch" system property.
      The Apache Commons Community has recently set up the Commons Text component
      as a home for algorithms working on strings. For this reason most of the string
      focused functionality in Commons Lang has been deprecated and moved to
      Commons Text. This includes:
      o All classes in the org.apache.commons.lang3.text and the
          org.apache.commons.lang3.text.translate packages
      o org.apache.commons.lang3.StringEscapeUtils
      o org.apache.commons.lang3.RandomStringUtils
      o The methods org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils.getJaroWinklerDistance and
      For more information see the Commons Text website:
      The class org.apache.commons.lang3.CharEncoding has been deprecated in favor of
      The following methods have been deprecated in
      org.apache.commons.lang3.ArrayUtils in favor of the corresponding insert
      methods. Note that the handling for null inputs differs between add and insert.
      o add(boolean[], int, boolean) -> insert(int, boolean[], boolean...)
      o add(byte[], int, boolean)    -> insert(int, byte[], byte...)
      o add(char[], int, boolean)    -> insert(int, char[], char...)
      o add(double[], int, boolean)  -> insert(int, double[], double...)
      o add(float[], int, boolean)   -> insert(int, float[], float...)
      o add(int[], int, boolean)     -> insert(int, int[], int...)
      o add(long[], int, boolean)    -> insert(int, long[], long...)
      o add(short[], int, boolean)   -> insert(int, short[], short...)
      o add(T[], int, boolean)       -> insert(int, T[], T...)
      The MANIFEST.MF now contains an additional entry:
        Automatic-Module-Name: org.apache.commons.lang3
      This should make it possible to use Commons Lang 3.6 as a module in the Java 9
      module system. For more information see the corresponding issue and the
      referenced mailing list discussions:
      The build problems present in the 3.5 release have been resolved. Building
      Commons Lang 3.6 should work out of the box with the latest Java 9 EA build.
