Announcing Tapestry 5.3.1

The Tapestry Team is very proud to announce the availability of Apache Tapestry 5.3.1.

Tapestry is primarily available for download via Maven, from the Maven central repository:

Maven Dependency

You can also download the source or JavaDocs archives.

Tapestry 5.3.1 is a bug fix release and represents a drop-in replacement for the previous stable 5.3 release.
Full details are in the release notes, but here's a few highlights:

  • @PerThread scope honored when service is created using autobuild
  • @ActivationRequestParameter encoded to be URL friendly
  • Exceptions while compressing JavaScript are fully reported
  • All forms/submission working normally after FileUploadException is raised
  • Asset path prefix configurable

As usual for each Tapestry5 release we've made great efforts to ensure an easy upgrade path; but be sure to read the upgrade notes carefully as some interfaces and methods that were deprecated in Tapestry 5.0 or 5.1 have been removed: you should recompile and retest your application after upgrading your dependency. If you still have problems, use the Tapestry user mailing list to get support.
