Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 2.0-alpha10
Introduction
------------
This is an alpha release of Apache Jackrabbit 2.0. This release implements
a pre-release version of the JCR 2.0 API, specified by the Java Specification
Request 283 (JSR 283, http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=283).
The purpose of this alpha release is to allow people to test and review
the new Jackrabbit and JCR 2.0 features before they are finalized. Feedback
to both the Jackrabbit project and the JSR 283 expert group is highly
appreciated. Note that an alpha release is not expected to be feature-complete
or otherwise suitable for production use.
Changes in this release
-----------------------
Jackrabbit 2.0 is a major upgrade from the earlier 1.x releases. The most
notable changes in this release are:
* Upgrade to JCR 2.0. This Jackrabbit release implements and is based
on a pre-release version of the JCR 2.0 API. All of the features
required by the JSR 283 specification have been implemented.
* Upgrade to Java 5. All of Jackrabbit (except the jcr-tests component)
now requires Java 5 as the base platform. Java 1.4 environments are no
longer supported.
* Removal of deprecated classes and features. Jackrabbit 2.0 is not
backwards compatible with client code that used any classes or features
that had been deprecated during the 1.x release cycle.
* Separate JCR Commons components. Many of the general-purpose JCR
components like JCR-RMI and OCM are now developed and released
separately from the Jackrabbit content repository. See the individual
components for their most recent releases.
* Data store feature enabled in the default repository configuration.
For more detailed information about all the changes in this and other
Jackrabbit releases, please see the Jackrabbit issue tracker at
