Summary: dist ships with old and buggy version of commons-collections
Repast-3.1 still ships with version 3.0 of the Apache
commons-collections library, which contains some severe
Although the bugs in commons-collections-3.0 may not
affect the core repast code, these bugs may affect
applications that link with the repast code, and the
fact that an old version of the library is shipped in
the Repast distrubtion makes it complicated to
construct build paths that exclude the version shipped
with Repast, and include the correct up-to-date version.
It also means that in applications that link with
commons-collections-3.1 and Repast-3.1, the core repast
code now uses a different version of the library, and
there is the risk of unknown bugs being introduced
because there is no guarantee that Repast-3.1 has been
regression tested using commons-collections-3.1.
