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.
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!
