Major enhancements include:
 
1)      First official release to maven central
2)      Provided ability to disable automatic canonicalization for
validation + disabled canonicalization for AntiSamy validation
3)      Fixed deadlock issues in the DefaultExecutor
4)      Multiple enhancements to the Encryptor implementation and
documentation
5)      Multiple fixes to ensure Java 1.5 compatibility
6)      Added an implementation of EncryptedProperties that extends
java.util.Properties
7)      Added new command-line utility to create, read and write
EncryptedProperties files.
 
A special thanks to Chris Schmidt for automating our build processes and
registering the ESAPI project with Maven central. Way to go, Chris! 
 
Additional thanks go to Kevin Wall, August Detlefsen, Ed Schaller, Patrick
Higgins and John Melton for their contributions in this release.
 
ESAPI 2.0 rc10 is a giant milestone for our project.  We are very close to
promoting ESAPI to general availability. The NSA has completed their review
of the ESAPI encryptor reference implementation and will be publishing those
results soon. This report, if positive, will give us the assurance we need
to promote ESAPI 2.0 to General Availability.
