Hi all,

We are moving our project to JDK 16 in preparation for JDK 17 LTS and we
facing a problem with jdom2 related to Java Modules. The automatic
based on the jar name gets confused with the number '2' in it.

The solution is simple, the single line 'Automatic-Module-Name: org.jdom2'
'core/package/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF' does the trick.

I found there's already a very clean PR185 (
that works like a sharm. Are there any chances of that PR being merged, and
a new
release (2.0.7?) posted to Maven Central?

PS.- Thank you for JDOM and JDOM2, I'm a happy users since the very early
days, got
     Mr. Harold's book by my side since August 1998, so go figure :)
