Breaking Changes

There have, unfortunately, been some minor breaking changes with this release compared to v0.9. Specifically:

  • Many Basexxx classes have been removed in favour of a 'simplified' interface and an 'advanced' interface. For example there is no BaseWidgetProcessor any more - there is just the WidgetProcessor interface and an AdvancedWidgetProcessor interface. All the 'simplified' interfaces have only one method. This was done in preparation for automatic function objects (closures) in Java 7
