Freemarker 2.0 is available

The first public release of Freemarker 2.0, codenamed Lazarus, is now available. Freemarker is a well known package for writing page templates in Java. The core of Freemarker 2 was rewritten using JavaCC and the older handwritten parser was dumped. Freemarker 2 now has full support for numerical operations. It allows arbitrary precision integer and floating point operations. Other features include numerical ranges and if/elseif.

Despite all the changes, the vast majority of code based on earlier versions of Freemarker should work unchanged. The exceptions to this are duly noted in the README document.
