[ANNOUNCE] Apache POI 5.0.0 released

kiwiwings
The Apache POI project is pleased to announce the release of POI 5.0.0.
Featured are a handful of new areas of functionality, and numerous bug fixes.

See the downloads page for binary and source distributions: https://poi.apache.org/download.html

Release Notes

Changes
------------
The most notable changes in this release are:

* Upgrade to ECMA-376 5th edition (transitional) schemas - expect API breaks when using XmlBeans directly
   some smaller changes are necessary when code is using the low-level CT... classes
* Change artifact names of poi-/ooxml-schemas to poi-ooxml-lite/full
* ooxml-security is part of poi-ooxml-full (known as ooxml-schemas) now and won't be provided separately
* updated dependencies to XMLSec 2.2.1, Bouncycastle 1.68, Commons-Codec 1.15, Commons-Compress 1.20
* XWPF - improvements in table and paragraph
* XSLF - improvements for paragraph
* provide JigSaw modules - some classes moved between packages for the JDK 9+ support, e.g.
ExtractorFactory, so imports need to be adjusted
* removed dependencies to jaxb
* removed deprecated code
* new experimental DeferredSXSSFWorkbook which avoids temp files by lazily generating rows (see DeferredGeneration in poi-examples)
* Some known issues with the new XDDFChart interfaces, e.g. https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=65016


Known issues
-----------------
* A regression with creating XSLFTables will be fixed soon in POI 5.0.1


A full list of changes is available in the change log: https://poi.apache.org/changes.html.
People interested should also follow the dev mailing list to track further progress.

writing Microsoft Office file formats, such as Excel, PowerPoint, Word,
Visio, Publisher and Outlook. It supports both the older (OLE2) and
