An open-source, federated content repository

ModeShape 5.3.0.Final is available

The ModeShape community is proud to announce the immediately availability of our latest stable release, ModeShape 5.3.0.Final.

This minor release addresses 11 bugs and 2 enhancements, most notably:

  • adding replica set support for the Mongo DB binary store to both the JSON and Wildfly configuration (see MODE-2635)
  • adding the ability to update the configuration for external sources “on the fly”, meaning that the repository does not need to be restarted each time
    an external source is added or changed (see MODE-2650)

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.
