This guide describes the changes to the AspectJ language and tools in AspectJ 5. These include support for Java 5 (Tiger) features, enhancements to load-time weaving, an support for an annotation-based development style for aspects. If you are new to AspectJ, we recommend you start by reading the programming guide.
This is a draft document and is subject to change before the design and implementation is complete. There is also no guarantee that all of the features in this document will be implemented in a 1.5.0 release - some may be deferred until 1.5.1 or even later. In general, features in which we have more confidence in the design will be implemented earlier, providing a framework for user feedback and direction setting on features for which the use cases are less obvious at time of writing."
