Load default configuration files API method

The API now contains a method to load configuration files from the default locations. These are:

  • $installationDir$/conf/flyway.conf
  • $user.home$/flyway.conf
  • $workingDirectory$/flyway.conf

You can use it as follows:

Flyway flyway = Flyway.configure(newClassLoader)

Multiline properties in configuration files

Configuration files now support splitting a property over multiple lines. To do this simple end a line with a backslash. All sequential backslash-ending lines will be appended together when the configuration file is loaded by Flyway.



Timestamp placeholder

A new default placeholder has been added, called flyway:timestamp. This contains the current time, in the format yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.
