The Apache MINA project team is proud to announce the release of Apache
MINA, a Java network application framework, version 1.0.2.

Apache MINA (Multipurpose Infrastructure for Network Applications) is a
network application framework which helps users develop network
applications easily by providing abstractions of network and protocol
I/O layers. The Apache MINA project website (mina.apache.org)
<http://mina.apache.org/> includes resources such as introductory
presentation slides and examples to help you learn MINA as soon as possible.

Feature List:

* Unified API for various transport types:
o In-VM pipe communication
o You can implement your own!
* Low-level and high-level API:
o Low-level: uses ByteBuffers
o High-level: uses user-defined message objects and codecs
* Stream-based I/O support via StreamIoHandler
* Filter interface as an extension point; similar to Servlet filters
o SSL support via SSLFilter thanks to Java 5 SSLEngine
o Thread pools are implemented as filters so that users can
customize thread model.
* Unit testability using mock objects
* JMX managability
* Traffic throttling
* Overload shielding
* Integration with well known containers such as PicoContainer and
* Smooth migration from Netty, a popular NIO framework.

Changes since 1.0.1 (please refer here <http://tinyurl.com/2lxt4g> for
detailed information.)

* Better memory utilization
* More than 10 bug fixes

The Apache MINA project team is always open for your feedback. Please

Thank you,
what we call human nature is actually human habit
