Classpath Helper Project announces bugfix release 1.1.7

Release Candidate 1.1.7 contains a major bug fix surrounding how Classpath Helper iterated over file folders.

If Classpath Helper encountered an empty directory it would stop iterating, effectively filtering out any remaining directories.

This would appear as missing file directories.

This bug did not effect jar contents viewing.

Milestone Release 1.1.4 made available

Milestone release designed to address request to not show files under the META-INF directory has being blocked.

1.1.4 introduces the ability to supply patterns for indicating that some directories/files should not calculate blocked files.

Resources that are loaded via ClassLoader.findResources() (such as MANIFEST.MF) don't really have the same notion of 'blocked' as classes or other resources.
