The ModeShape community is proud to announce the immediately availability of our latest stable release, ModeShape 4.3.0.Final. The JARs and other artifacts are already available in the JBoss Maven repository and in our downloads area, and will make it to Maven Central soon. See our Getting Started guide for details, and the release notes for specifics of the changes in this release.
This minor release contains fixes for 18 bugs and 11 enhancements, the most important of which is moving from Infinispan 6.0.2 to Infinispan 7.2.0.Final to fix MODE-2280. This is a big jump with several other fixes and improvements, but it does mean that our Wildfly integration kit had to be changed to use Infinispan in library mode rather than via the Wildfly subsystem (which is still 6.0.2). So if you’re using the Wildfly kit, when moving to ModeShape 4.3.0.Final you will have to update your cache configuration as described in this section of the documentation.
In addition to the Infinispan related changes, we’ve enhanced the Backup & Restore API allowing a more fine-grained control over what parts of a repository are backed up and then restored. We’ve also added the ability to perform a full repository backup & restore via the REST Service. Be sure to look at our release notes for details on other changes.
Thanks to our whole community for the work that’s gone into this release! Give it a try and let us know what you think!
