The ModeShape community is proud to announce the immediately availability of our latest stable release, ModeShape 4.6.0.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 13 issues and 5 enhancements, the most important of which include storing indexes in Elastic Search and compressing binaries in backups. We encourage everyone to update, but if you’re upgrading a 4.2 or earlier Wildfly installation, be sure to see this section of the documentation about the cache configuration changes made back in 4.3.0.Final. Also be sure to look at our release notes for details on other changes.
This is the last planned release of the 4.x series. Development of ModeShape 5 has been progressing steadily and has some excellent new features around better storage. In fact, it’s nearly feature complete, so look for a 5.0 release in the next few weeks.
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!
