Version 1.5.0 of Bee Config is now available. This brings much greater Java support, whilst carrying forward the excellent Scala api.

Version 1.5.0 of Bee Config is now available. This brings full Java support, whilst carrying forward the excellent Scala api.

In previous versions, file i/o, parsing and config manipulation were all written in Scala, which was less easy to use from Java programs.

Now, a new ConfigJ class in Java emulates the Config class in Scala. The Java parser is shared by both. The file i/o and parsing have been back-ported to Java, although this will not be evident in existing Scala programs (unless they happen to use the underlying utility classes explicitly).

A new feature has been added. A configuration item can now have a unit of measurement. So, use 60s when you need sixty seconds. Or 60┬Ás when you need sixty micro-seconds. Use 8 KiB when you need 8192 bytes. Time and memory size are fully supported; other values with arbitrary units are also supported, albeit with no knowledge of common shorthands etc.
