Changes in FTL (FreeMarker Template Language)

  • Multi-type variables that are both string and number or string and date are now output using their number or date value instead of the string value when used in the ${...} interpolation. This practically makes the string part of a string/number or a string/date variables useless.

  • Bugfix: operator "or" ( || ) worked wrongly when its left operand was a composite expression (e.g., the second || in false || true || false ; this was evaluated to false , but it should be true )

  • Bugfix: Less-than sign inside comments confused the FTL parser (e.g. <#-- blah < blah --> ); it commented out everything after the problematic comment.

  • Bugfix: Comparing two numerical constants (e.g. 3 == 3 ) caused internal error in the FTL parser, and aborted template processing with error.

  • Experimental date/time type support was removed, since it seems that this initial implementation was misguided. FreeMarker 2.2 will certainly support data/time.

Changes on the Java side

  • Bugfix: Number s wrapped with BEANS_WRAPPER was displayed with the toString() method of wrapped object. Now they are rendered according to the number_format setting, because multi-type variables that are both string and number are now output using their number value instead of the string value.

  • Experimental date/time type support was removed, since it seems that this initial implementation was misguided. FreeMarker 2.2 will certainly support data/time.
