Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 0.9

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

The Apache Jackrabbit project is an effort to build and maintain an open source implemention of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JCR) specified in the Java Specification Request 170 (JSR-170).

The version 0.9 release is the first official release of the Jackrabbit project. The goal of this release is to provide a tested and packaged version of Jackrabbit for users who have so far been using custom snapshots. This release also provides a well defined baseline for the upcoming Jackrabbit version 1.0.

Users of this release should note that the JCR extensions and internal component interfaces in this release may not be upwards compatible with the upcoming 1.0 release.

Incubation ----------

Apache Jackrabbit is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software Foundation. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF. The incubation status is recorded at

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

This release contains the main Jackrabbit implementation and the JCR-RMI network layer for the JCR API. The JCR utility library jackrabbit-commons is also included in this release.

The release contains both binary and source jar files. The binary jackrabbit and jackrabbit-commons jar files are built from the jackrabbit-0.9-incubating-src.jar file, and the binary jcr-rmi jar file from the jcr-rmi-0.9-incubating-src.jar file.

The runtime dependency libraries are not included in the release, you need to download the dependencies separately.

Each release file is accompanied by an MD5 checksum and a PGP signature. The public key used for the signatures is located in the KEYS file located in the parent directory.
