Paranamer 1.1.6 released

Many think that Java needs parameter names for methods to be accessible. The Java 6 team ran out of time to deliver the functionality, and the Java 7 team does not appear to have it on their radar (sadly).

Luckily Paranamer delivers parameter name access for Java classes for versions of Java 1.4 onwards.  It has two modes of operation : generating parameter names from source, and extracting parameter names from a class file's debug table (if present).

It is an ideal library to use for binding URLs to objects, command line arguments to components, and other configuration saving designs.  

Version of Paranamer 1.1.6 was released yesterday and fixed some bugs with both the source generating and bytecode extracting modes of Paranamer.
