In this release we are introducing the concept of Entry types. This was necessary to implement the first special entry type (Sharing) that will aid the Sharing feature in sensenet.

Entry types can be used to store feature-specific security entries along with other, normal entries so that they can be used in the same permission evaluation process while managed separately.

Breaking change

Because this new feature requires a new column in the database, this is a breaking change. If you are using the security component inside sensenet, you do not have to worry about it: the upgrade script is included in the sensenet patch.

If you are using this package as a standalone component, please use the attached patch script that will take care of migrating your data to the new schema (in-place upgrade, just execute the script).
