An open-source, federated content repository

Announcing ModeShape 2.5.0.Beta2

ModeShape 2.5.0.Beta2 is now available. This is the second beta release for ModeShape 2.5, and eliminates the dependencies on the JCIP and Google Collections libraries, upgrades to Lucene 3.1 (with fixes and performance improvements), fixes several issues with versioning, improves performance of versioning-related methods, and fixes about twenty bug fixes. For details, see the release notes for Beta2.

If you recall, 2.5.0.Beta1 added used a new build process via Maven 3, added several javax.jcr.Credentials classes for easier anonymous and HTTP servlet authentication, added a built-in profiling framework enabling use of Byteman runtime bytecode injection, improves performance in several areas (including saves, imports, and startup), and fixes almost two dozen bugs. For details, see the release notes for Beta1.

The 2.5.0.Beta2 release is available in the JBoss Maven repository (see our Maven instructions) and on our downloads page. Give this release a spin, and let us know what you think!

We’re currently planning one more beta release in about 3-4 weeks followed by a final release about 2 weeks later.

Thanks to the ModeShape community of users and developers. Keep finding and reporting (and fixing!) those issues!

ModeShape is

a lightweight, fast, pluggable, open-source JCR repository that federates and unifies content from multiple systems, including files systems, databases, data grids, other repositories, etc.

Use the JCR API to access the information you already have, or use it like a conventional JCR system (just with more ways to persist your content).

ModeShape used to be 'JBoss DNA'. It's the same project, same community, same license, and same software.
