Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 2.6.3


This is Apache Jackrabbit(TM) 2.6, a fully compliant implementation of the
Content Repository for Java(TM) Technology API, version 2.0 (JCR 2.0) as
specified in the Java Specification Request 283 (JSR 283).

Apache Jackrabbit 2.6.3 is a patch release that contains fixes and
improvements over Jackrabbit 2.6. This release also contains a security fix.
Jackrabbit 2.6.x releases are considered stable and targeted for production

Security advisory (JCR-3630)

As reported by Noel Dunne and Lars Krapf, there was a cross-site scripting
(XSS) vulnerability in the jackrabbit-jcr-server component, used for providing
WebDAV access to the repository. This release fixes the issue.
