XDoclet for JDK 5

From the xdoclet-user mailing list:

I just uploaded a snapshot of xjavadoc that (among other fixes) provides support for Java 5, as of XJD-41. Many thanks go to Anton Adamansky for his work on this issue.

You should be able to just replace the xjavadoc-1.1.jar from a Xdoclet binary release with this snapshot and use jdk1.5 features with Xdoclet.

Have fun,

Let us know if you find any issues.

In the market for a new bike

After enjoying a few cold ones after the Denver JUG last week, I walked outside to find that my bike was gone. It was a nice bike (a Gary Fisher Sugar 3+), so now I'm in the process of trying to find the same one on eBay. The loss should be covered under homeowners insurance, but it's a high deductible that'll likely only result in a few hundred bucks. Oh well, it's just a bike. With the bad luck I've had in the last couple months (lost phone, laptop dying in Norway), I'm hopeful some good luck is right around the corner.
