Finally! Antville 1.1 just has arrived!
We are pretty proud to announce that – after a bunch of pre-releases – the final version of Antville 1.1 has hit our servers.

At the usual place, our good ole (but brand-new) adele provides the packages for you ready for download.

Please do not expect new features (in comparison to the recent pre-release) or le dernier cri in terms of such nifty (or useless?) things being called Atom, Trackback or centralistic authentication services.

The change log rather reveals minor bug fixes and some generic changes in code structure and build system.

And hey! Unlike others we certainly keep up our license: Antville is still open source and open minded.

(Well, in fact, most likely this will be the last release under the Helma license. Future releases will be published under the eigentext license which will be just as liberal as the present one. Promise! But you'll get another update about that just at the right time.)

We encourage everyone to download this final release and to report to us bugs, misconceptions or unexpected behaviours – or even just let us know what you think of it, generally.

We hope you like it as we do (and as we like you because in the end we're not in it for the money but for shitloads of money, er, our beloved users).

Changes in Antville Library
With the transition from lowercase to first-letter uppercase prototype names Antville (and Antville library, resp.) got in trouble with two of Helma's built-in constructors, Image and File.

To prevent indecent side effects as well as inappropriate work on the Antville codebase we decided to move the Helma constructors into a new namespace instead of renaming Antville's Image and File prototypes. Thus, the Helma constructors are now called Helma.Image and Helma.File.

As single trade-off of this measure the current version 1.4 of Antville library does not contain the additional methods of Helma's File prototype. These have moved to a file called Helma.js in the global scope of Antville itself.

Thus, version 1.4 will be incompatible with applications using these additional File methods.

To fix this we recommend to temporarily use the Helma.js file contained in Antville now and incorporate the upcoming Helma library containing many of Helma's built-in constructors rewritten as JavaScript prototypes later.

Please also note that the prototypes in Antville library now are first-letter uppercase, too. This should not affect you at all when using the library as is (zip file).

However, an update of the source code via CVS could result in strange conflicts. In this case we recommend to do a completely new check-out of the AntvilleLib module.
