Glazed Lists 1.8.0 Release Notes

Glazed Lists 1.8.0 is a stable feature release suitable for production use.

It contains a few small changes that are not backwards compatible:

The release has better integration with Swing, SWT, Hibernate, OSGi, Maven and SwingX. Filtering has been refined, with improved support for international languages and matching support for regex and search-engine style qualifiers. Some EventLists have new features, including runtime manipulation of the FunctionList function and GroupingList comparator. There are new classes for working with user input, including TransactionList and undo/redo support. The release fixes several bugs.
