It's with pleasure we announce the last milestone umbrella release of Smooks 2. Noteworthy changes include:
  • Pipeline support to enrich data, rename/remove elements or attributes, and much more
  • Delegate reader: delegates events to nested visitors to go on and create a new event stream from their output, useful for pipeline preprocessing
  • Type safe execution context
  • Better performance:
    • DFDL cartridge was upgraded to Apache Daffodil 3 in order to leverage Daffodil’s new streaming capabilities
    • Default SAX parser implementation changed from Apache Xerces to FasterXML's Woodstox: benchmarks consistently showed Woodstox outperforming Xerces
    • Eliminated CPU and memory hot spots
    • Replaced synchronised data structures with thread-safe lock-free alternatives
    • Forked Apache Xerces and modify it to provide a more optimal DOM implementation
  • Java namespaces were re-organised to provide a cleaner and more intuitive package structure
Detailed release notes can be viewed at: https://github.com/smooks/smooks/releases/tag/v2.0.0-M3. Cartridge release notes are located in the cartridge's GitHub release page. Milestone 3 concludes the final major changes of Smooks 2. Future releases prior to GA will be release candidates addressing any shortcomings or bugs.

Regards,

The Smooks Team
