The Apache JMeter team announces the availability of Apache JMeter 2.5.1

This release corrects mainly a few bugs that were introduced in 2.5.

Additional known bugs: Version 2.5 introduced a concurrent download
feature for embedded HTML resources. Unfortunately this may result in
corrupted downloads or other errors (bugs 51918[1] and 51919[2]). We
will fix these bugs as soon as possible; meanwhile the feature should
not be used.

JMeter 2.5.1 requires Java 1.5 or later to run.

== All users are recommended to upgrade. ==

Apache JMeter is a Java application designed to test server applications.
It can be used to:
* generate test loads

It includes support for protocols such as HTTP(S), JDBC, JMS, FTP, and
It can also be extended with user-written code.
