This version of this component is fully functional with Apache ManifoldCF 1.6 and
above.  It is backwards compatible with earlier versions as well, except for the fact
that two additional ElasticSearch fields are required for this plugin to work.

If you are replacing a version of Apache ManifoldCF Plugin for ElasticSearch that is
older than version 2.0, you must declare two additional fields (representing parent
acls and parent deny acls), and reindex all your documents.  Otherwise, the plugin
will prevent you from viewing any documents.
