Description Curt Arnold 2005-12-11 05:38:11 UTC
CLIRR (http://clirr.sourceforge.net) generates compatibility reports by
comparing two JAR files.  This enhancement adds a "clirr" target which generates
docs/compatibility.html which identifies compatibility errors on the current
HEAD against a specified reference jar.

The current SVN HEAD will cause a NullPointerException in CLIRR with clirr 0.6
which has been reported as
which contains a workaround if you are interested enough to patch CLIRR.
