An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 5.1.0.Final is available

The ModeShape community is proud to announce the immediately availability of our latest stable release, ModeShape 5.1.0.Final.

This minor release addresses 16 bugs and 11 enhancements, most notably:

  • several bug fixes around the new persistence support
  • 5 new sequencers: ModeShape can now sequence EPUB, PDF and ODF files together with several audio and video formats
  • simplified Wildfly configuration for built-in components like sequencers, connectors, index providers etc (see this issue for more information)
  • the REST service’s backup and restore operations now support node batches, useful for avoiding OOM errors when backing up and restoring large repositories

You can migrate from ModeShape 3 and ModeShape 4 by following our migration guide. If you’re starting to use ModeShape for the first time, make sure you read the getting started guide.

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.

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!

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.
