      Description

      Cocoon is now preparing to release 2.1.12

      Forrest is already using an older in-development version, so it should be straight-forward.

      Upgrading our dependencies provides a good test of Cocoon and our interactions with it. It would be good for both projects to do this now, and then again after Cocoon does the release. Please help.

          I have followed our instructions in etc/cocoon_upgrade/
          It works.

          Did not yet do Step 3 and Step 4 (regarding updating other supporting libraries) as there is a mixture with some of our libraries being newer and vice versa. I have manually compared the lists of jars for each project and will post a comparison soon.

          Also not yet done Step 9 (regarding config files).

          Did need to twiddle the PDF plugin now that Cocoon has caught up and it does works nicely. See FOR-1193.

          Our usual tests do seem to work properly.

          See COCOON-2333 "C-2.1: upgrade some supporting product dependencies"
          which lists all Cocoon-2.1 jars and has some upgrade notes, especially for each jar that Forrest also uses.

          I upgraded my Forrest to use current Cocoon-2.1.12-dev and it seems okay (see the abovementioned thread). This also had upgraded FOP, Batik, etc.

          Going to make a branch in Forrest SVN to do this upgrade, then follow on after the Cocoon release.

          https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/forrest/branches/update_cocoon_2.1.12

          Following $FORREST_HOME/etc/cocoon_upgrade/

          Not yet done Step 8 or Step 9.

          The branch is ready now for people to do further improvements and bug fixing.

          When the Cocoon release happens then we can follow the upgrade process again.

          The only issue that i have seen so far is some Batik troubles with round-corner PNGs (see FOR-1241).

          Merged the branch with r1529397.

          Forgot to adjust our Gump descriptor, so fixed in r1529553.

          Our Forrestbot automated processes on forrest.zones.a.o server did handle the upgrade smoothly. The Gump builds are also happy. Not heard any concerns from humans. All seems okay.
