Apache Commons Text 1.2 releases, library focused on algorithms working on strings


Apache Commons Text 1.2 officially released, the project provides a large number of algorithms focused on dealing with strings and text blocks.

At our time of the release of 1.2, our build, “mvn clean site,” succeeds with Java 9.0.1 build 9.0.1+11, and we believe all of our features to be Java 9 compatible. However, when we run the build there are substantive warnings particularly with the maven-changes-plugin:jira-report.
