Version Date Content
5.0.6 December 2010 Automatically converted a number to the correct type (aka., class).

Notice that a number specified in EL is interpreted as long, by default. For example, in ${c:new('foo.Mine', 10)}, 10 is interpreted as long. If you're using 5.0.5 and prior, you have to convert it to integer manually : ${c:new('foo.Mine', c:int(10))}.
