5.0.7-SNAPSHOT -11 out for testing

We need you.

For anyone of you being able to verify IzPack snapshots - there is a new snapshot 5.0.7-SNAPSHOT (with suffix -11) available for testing.

Much work has been done since release 5.0.6 and although there are ongoing tests from my side also with more complex installers I cannot cover all features.
KUDOs to all contributors taking part in this, regardless whether they contributed code or tested and reported issues.

The current list of changes can be found here:
https://izpack.atlassian.net/browse/IZPACK-1329?jql=fixVersion%3D5.0.7%20and%20status%3DResolved

Highlights:
- New PDFLicencePanel
- New VersionComparisonMajor condition
- Significant improvements of the console installation mode (all panels, overall layout, more translated text items)
- Significant improvements in logging and console output of the compiler and installer
- Fixes, improvements and consolidation of all three (1 more in 5.0.7) types of license panels.
There can be optionally activated word-wrapping and paging of longer texts for all license panels in console installation mode depending on the format of your license text.
- XSDs are up to date and compiler really uses them for validating of all possible XML descriptors
- More compiler cross-checks of existing references between descriptors
- Customizing: Panel validators can be given configuration options
- Plenties of bug fixes

Although there might be added more resolved issues, it seems we're in a good shape.

Please be also aware of some smaller API changes and enhancements.

If you're a native speaker and are willing to translate IzPack to your language please ask, here is also some work to do. Actually I found at least missing translations for many languages for the console installation mode (which I added at least in English for all langpacks). The number of translated items differs between the language pack files.

There has been deployed a snapshot version of the the upcoming IzPack 5.0.6 release for testing to Sonatype OSS Snapshots.
This is the potential candidate for the 5.0.6 release.
Please test and report whether your issues are solved.

If you can check also older issues, whether they cannot be closed.

Fixed issues at the moment:

+Chandni Agrawal For technical questions there should be better used the mailing list izpack-user at Google Groups, see http://news.izpack.org/2015/06/relocation-of-izpack-services-after.html about how to subscribe. Please send also your install.xml or the important piece of it to see how you intended to solve this. Sounds easy.
