Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Jackrabbit 1.0 Released
Date Sat, 08 Apr 2006 08:02:51 GMT
The Apache Jackrabbit community is pleased to announce the release of
Apache Jackrabbit version 1.0. The release is available for download


Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 1.0


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

Apache Jackrabbit 1.0 is a fully conforming and stable JSR-170
implementation. Developed from the same source tree as the JSR-170
reference implementation, the 1.0 release implements the full JCR API,
including level 1, level 2, and all the optional features like
versioning, transactions, and observation.

See the Apache Jackrabbit website at http://jackrabbit.apache.org/ 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



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 alpha

 * RMI network layer for the JCR API.


 * Deployable Jackrabbit installation with WebDAV support for JCR.



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


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


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 0.9

Due to a change in query functionality (JCR-257) a full rebuild of the
full text indexes is required on existing content repositories when
upgrading from the 0.9 release. Reindexing can be triggered by
manually removing the index directories when the repository has been
shut down. You should also add a repository-level SearchIndex
configuration element to your repository configuration file if one is
not already included.
