Release Notes for ModeShape 3.0.1.Final

The ModeShape 3.0.1.Final release is the first patch release of 3.0 and our new architecture. This release fixes a few minor issues and one larger clustering-related issue. We hope you enjoy it!

3.0.1.Final provides a fast, distributed, hierarchical database that clients work with via the standard JCR 2.0 (JSR-283) API. ModeShape 3.0 is a major upgrade over 2.x and offers significant improvements in performance and scalability, while retaining all of ModeShape 2's JCR-related features. ModeShape 3.0 has complete integration with JBoss AS 7.1, allowing deployed components to simply lookup and use repositories managed by ModeShape's service.

Overall, ModeShape 3.0 has changed a lot since ModeShape 2.8.x:


All of the JCR features previously supported in 2.x are working and ready for use. If any issues are found, please log a bug report in our JIRA.

Other ModeShape features

One feature not related to the JCR 2.0 API is enabling a repository to access the content in external systems (e.g., file system, SVN, JDBC, JCR, etc.). This feature was in 2.x but has been pushed to 3.1 (roughly 6 weeks after 3.0.0.Final) so that we could release 3.0 earlier with full support for JCR 2.0.
