Hi folks,

milestone 3 of charset enhancement is released.

- compared to JDK 6 classes, I downsized the footprint to 13 %, which 
also should perform class loading, because encoder maps will be lazy 
- additionally memory consumption of those encoders is reduced to 
roundabout 30 %, depending on particular charset.
- In this release I established an alternative mapping technique, which 
should be faster for most real text's character distribution with 
minimal mapping failures, but maybe slower on massive occurrence of 
unmappable codes or rare characters.

See my projects home: --->

I believe, these technics could also be used for most multi-byte charsets.

Happy holidays,
