BIRT Development

An issue with BIRT incorrectly handling spaces in the ClassPath has been found by the community and reported as Bugzilla Id 266914. Since this is an issue that many people will likely run into, we are going to patch this and make a new, release available to the community.

We will create a Development Plan and post this for review. We will aim to make the new build available as soon as possible and will also make this the default download release for the 2.3.2 series.
