Henri Yandell continues to make many improvements to the Taglibs build and the Standard and String Taglibs in particular.

Potentially, the active parts in Taglibs may move to be part of Tomcat in the near future. Pasting part of Henri's recent email to the taglibs-dev list:

The general idea is:

  • Move Standard, JSTL implementation, over to Tomcat. 1.0 would be deprecated.
  • Move RDC over to Tomcat.
  • Start a new taglib (my new favourite name is Extended; ie: Apache Extended Taglib to complement the Apache Standard Taglib) that is built from the undeprecated parts of Taglibs that find favour. Some might be refactored from Taglibs to EL functions. Think the Commons Lang of Taglibs.
  • Other taglibs to be retired within Jakarta and make their way over to the Apache Attic.

Accordingly, the Extended Taglib has been created in the Taglibs Sandbox.
