What Happened to Excalibur-X?

Avalon Excalibur is in the process of making sure that all of the uilities and code directly relate to Avalon.  That means that generic code is being moved out of Avalon's control.  Excalibur will be hit hardest by this restructuring.  To make things easier on our users, we are providing a compatibility JAR that has all the projects that we will no longer be supporting.  The classes or packages that are deprecated signify the projects that already have a replacement.  If you would like to volunteer to maintain the remaining code in the compatibility JAR, please contact the Avalon Developer's list.  The only exception to this rule is Excalibur Testlet, which has been made part of Excalibur Component.

PGP Signatures

Many of the distribution kits have been digitally signed (using PGP). If so, there will be an accompanying distribution.asc file in the same directory as the distribution. The PGP keys can be found in the distribution directory at <http://www.apache.org/dist/avalon/release/KEYS>.

Always test available signatures, e.g.,
> pgpk -a KEYS
> pgpv Avalon-4.1.4-bin.tar.gz.asc
> pgp -ka KEYS
> pgp Avalon-4.1.4-bin.tar.gz.asc
> gpg --import KEYS
> gpg --verify Avalon-4.1.4-bin.tar.gz.asc
