An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 2.8.3.Final is available

Today we’re announcing the immediate availability of ModeShape 2.8.3.Final, which contains just under a dozen bug fixes that were reported against earlier 2.8.x releases. The release artifacts are available in the JBoss Maven repository (see our Maven instructions) and on our downloads page. The Getting Started and Reference Guides are available, too.

If you’re using any 2.x version, we recommend upgrading to this release.

There is one more feature that we plan to add in an upcoming 2.8.4 release: a utility for transferring content from a 2.8 repository into a 3.0 repository. The utility will create a 3.0-compatible backup of the 2.8 repository, and then you can use 3.0’s restore capability to load that content into a new ModeShape 3.0 repository.

However, we do expect that the upcoming 2.8.4.Final release will be the last release for the 2.x line.

As always, thanks to the entire ModeShape community for the continued use of 2.8.x and for help in finding and fixing the issues. Great job, everyone!

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.
