Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 1.1

Introduction ------------

The Apache Jackrabbit project is an effort to build and maintain an open source implementation of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JCR) specified in the Java Specification Request 170 (JSR-170). The project also produces a various tools and components related to the JCR API.

Apache Jackrabbit 1.1 is an incremental release that fixes a number of issues and introduces some new features. The most notable changes in this release include the removal of the Xerces dependency and a set of performance improvements. See the included change history for details.

See the Apache Jackrabbit website at for more information.

Release Contents ----------------

The main contents of this release are the Apache Jackrabbit core content repository implementation and the related general-purpose JCR utilities:


jackrabbit-core-1.1.jar jackrabbit-jcr-commons-1.1.jar

This release contains also additional components that offer extra functionality for use with either Apache Jackrabbit core or any JCR compliant content repository. These modules should be considered beta quality:

* RMI network layer for the JCR API.

jackrabbit-jcr-rmi-1.1-src.jar jackrabbit-jcr-rmi-1.1.jar

* Deployable Jackrabbit installation with WebDAV support for JCR.


jackrabbit-jcr-webdav-1.1.jar jackrabbit-jcr-client-1.1.jar jackrabbit-jcr-server-1.1.jar jackrabbit-server-1.1.war

* J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) resource adapter for Jackrabbit.

jackrabbit-jca-1.1-src.jar jackrabbit-jca-1.1.rar

* Text indexing filters for Jackrabbit. Includes example filters for Adobe PDF and MS Excel, PowerPoint, and Word.

jackrabbit-index-filters-1.1-src.jar jackrabbit-index-filters-1.1.jar

All components are released as a source jar file and one or more compiled binary files. All files contain a README.txt file with more information. Note that external runtime dependencies are only included for the war and rar archives. Other dependencies can be downloaded either manually or automatically using the Maven build system.

Each release file is accompanied by SHA1 and MD5 checksums and a PGP signature. The public key used for the signatures can be found in the KEYS file located in the parent directory.

Upgrading from 1.0 ------------------

Apache Jackrabbit 1.1 is fully compatible with the 1.0 release. An Apache Jackrabbit 1.0 installation can be upgraded by replacing the relevant jar files with the new versions. No changes to repository contents are needed.
