The Apache Jackrabbit community is pleased to announce the release of

Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 1.3.1


Apache Jackrabbit is a fully conforming implementation of the Content
Repository for Java Technology API (JCR). A content repository is a
hierarchical content store with support for structured and
unstructured content, full text search, versioning, transactions,
observation, and more. Typical applications that use content
repositories include content management, document management, and
records management systems.

Apache Jackrabbit 1.3.1 is patch release with bug fixes and
improvements for clustering, query, and other features.

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

Release Contents

The release consists of a single source archive and a number of
pre-compiled binary component archives.

    * Jackrabbit source code (jackrabbit-1.3.1-src.jar)

        The main source archive contains a "jackrabbit-1.3.1-src" directory
        with the full released source code and build environment. Use the
        following commands (or the equivalent in your system) to build all
        the released components with Maven 2:

          $ jar xf jackrabbit-1.3.1-src.jar
          $ cd jackrabbit-1.3.1-src
          $ mvn install

The components contained in the released source archive are listed
below (with the pre-compiled binary archives in parenthesis):

    * Jackrabbit API (jackrabbit-api-1.3.1.jar)

        Interface extensions that Apache Jackrabbit supports in
        addition to the standard JCR API.

    * Jackrabbit JCR Commons (jackrabbit-jcr-commons-1.3.1.jar)

        General-purpose classes for use with the JCR API.

    * Jackrabbit JCR Tests (jackrabbit-jcr-tests-1.3.1.jar)

        Set of JCR API test cases designed for testing the compliance
        of an implementation. Note that this is not the official JCR TCK!

        Core of the Apache Jackrabbit content repository implementation.

    * Jackrabbit Text Extractors (jackrabbit-text-extractors-1.3.1.jar)

        Interfaces and common utility classes used for building a
        WebDAV server or client.

    * Jackrabbit JCR Server (jackrabbit-jcr-server-1.3.1.jar)

        WebDAV servlet implementations based on JCR.

    * Jackrabbit Repository Classloader (jackrabbit-classloader-1.3.1.jar)

        Java classloader for loading classes from JCR content repositories.

    * Jackrabbit Web Application (jackrabbit-webapp-1.3.1.war)

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 to Jackrabbit 1.3

Apache Jackrabbit 1.3 is fully compatible with the previous 1.x
releases. A previous Apache Jackrabbit 1.x installation can be
upgraded by replacing the relevant jar files with the new versions. No
changes to repository contents are needed.

This release replaces the previous jackrabbit-index-filters component
with an improved jackrabbit-text-extractors component. An existing
Jackrabbit installation can be upgraded to use the new text extraction
components by deploying the new jackrabbit-text-extractors jar file
and updating the relevant search index configuration. Jackrabbit still
supports old index filter configurations, but to use them you need to
leave the old jackrabbit-index-filters jar file in place.

See below for a more detailed description of the structural changes in
the Apache Jackrabbit 1.2 release.

Upgrading to Jackrabbit 1.2

The most notable effect of the component restructuring in the 1.2
release was that the previous jackrabbit-core component has been split
in three pieces: jackrabbit-api, jackrabbit-jcr-commons, and
jackrabbit-core. Thus you need to replace the previous
jackrabbit-core-1.x.jar file with the three new jar archives.

The structure of the WebDAV components have also changed. WebDAV
support now consists of the webapp component jackrabbit-webapp and the
libraries jackrabbit-webdav and jackrabbit-jcr-server.

The Apache Lucene dependency used for full text indexing has been
upgraded to version 2.0 in this release. Lucene 2.0 is able to
continue using existing index files, but you can also manually
recreate the index with Lucene 2.0 extensions by removing the "index"
directories of a closed repository. Jackrabbit will automatically
re-index content when the repository is next started.

Also the Apache Derby dependency has been upgraded to version 10.2.
Like Lucene, the new Derby version can keep using existing database
files. New repositories and workspaces will however be created using
extensions and improvements introduced in the 10.2 version.
