[ANN] VPP 2.2.0 Released

- New features:
- Velocity Context tools can now be configured by referencing a
configured data type. This means that the tool can be configured in the
build file using Ant's configuration conventions
- Added Velocity event handler support. Event handlers can be
configured just like tools making them flexible and easy to use.
- Included a useful event handler, VPPFailOnNullInsertion, which throws
BuildException if an attempt is made to insert the value of an undefined
- Added an 'add' attribute to the property element of VPPEngine. This
supports the ability to configure multi-value Velocity Engine properties
such as resource loader paths.
- Updated documentation for the above and fixed a few typos.
