Hello folks,

Jeff Ichnowski and Jeremy Long just released the next revision of the ESAPI Java Encoder project. 

* This is the encoder the is going to replace the current encoding implementation of ESAPI for Java. 
* In addition to support the ESAPI interface, this library supports a significant number of encoding functions beyond ESAPI for Java and other encoding libraries.

The current 1.1 release adds significant unit tests, tightened a few rules, speeds up performance and includs a JSP taglib.

Other highlights:

* Java 1.5+ project
* This project is a simple-to-use drop-in encoder class with little baggage.
* No third party libraries or configuration necessary.
* This code was designed for high-availability/high-performance encoding functionality.
