2.3.11 roadmap - focusing on JSP improvements

For the FreeMarker's next release (2.3.11) I will focus on improving the JSP tag library support. We have one bug reported for FreeMarker not complying completely to JSP specification for the lookup order of tag library JAR files as well as one feature request for supporting JSP 2.0 SimpleTags. Both of these are rather nontrivial to implement, so they'll take some time. (Also, this is not to say these will be the only changes for 2.3.11.)

Of course, all of these improvements also go into the (separately maintained) codebase for our next major release, 2.4.0.

FreeMarker 2.3.10 is released

We're pleased to announce that FreeMarker 2.3.10 is now released. This release contains several important bugfixes and minor feature improvements. It is completely backwards compatible with any other 2.3.x version and as such can be used as a drop-in replacement for them.
