These are the release notes and advice for upgrading Joda-Time from version 2.5 to version 2.6.

Joda-Time version 2.6

Joda-Time is a date and time handling library that seeks to replace the JDK
Date and Calendar classes.

This release contains enhancements, bug fixes and a time zone update.
The release runs on JDK 5 or later.

Joda-Time is licensed under the business-friendly Apache License Version 2.
This is the same license as all of Apache, plus other open source projects such as Spring.
The intent is to make the code available to the Java community with the minimum
of restrictions. If the license causes you problems please contact the mailing list.

Deprecations since 2.5

Bug fixes since 2.5
- Handle complex prefix/suffix combinations [#194, #203]
  For example, 'M' for months and 'm' for minutes.
  Parser is generally case insensitive, but handles this specific case sensitivity

- Attempt to tackle an Android deadlock [#196]
  Use dedicated lock objects instead of locking on the class object

- Fix name provider [#176]
  Name provider relied on tzdb short names matching JDK data names
  This has ceased to be true due to recent changes in tzdb, so changed to a different algorithm
  Data returned still depends on the JDK data, not the tzdb
  Thus, tzdb may say AEST for Sydney Australia, but if the JDK still has EST, then that is what you get

- Fix time-zone compilation tests

Joda-Time uses annotations from Joda-Convert.
In the Java programming language, this dependency is optional, however in Scala it is not.
Scala users must manually add the Joda-Convert v1.2 dependency.
