2008-11-03:    Parsley 1.0.2 supports ApplicationDomains

This maintenance release fixes all known issues that surfaced in the 1.0.1 release. The Parsley release itself is backwards compatible and can be used as a drop-in replacement for the previous release. Only the SpiceLib dependency which was updated to the 1.1.0 release contains some changes in the Reflection API that broke backwards compatibility. So if you used SpiceLibs ReflectionAPI directly in your Parsley Application code you might need to tweak the code a bit.

The most significant change in this release is that Parsley now supports ApplicationDomains. The ApplicationContextParser class contains a new applicationDomain property. If you use Parsley with Flex Modules or otherwise with SWF files loaded into a separate domain you can now instruct Parsley to use this domain to resolve class names.

Additionally the release contains a bunch of minor fixes and enhancements listed in the release notes below.

This will very likely be the second to last Parsley 1 release. Right after the Pimento release we will start with development for Parsley 2, which will be very different. So in a few weeks we will create a branch in SVN. Trunk will then contain the upcoming Version 2 and will be unstable for a few months. Those of you who work directly on SVN should then switch to the branch_v.1.0. We will work on the final Parsley 1 release in parallel, adding any fixes for bugs that still surface, but not adding any new features except for an XML configuration namespace for Pimento.

Now that all existing frameworks have been updated the next release will be the initial Pimento Release Candidate. The only thing missing is the manual, so you can expect the release in about 3 or 4 weeks.
