Release Notes for ModeShape 3.1.1.Final

The ModeShape 3.1.1.Final release is the first patch release for the second stable release of our new architecture. It's been a long journey with fourteen different alphas, betas, and candidate releases. But this is a huge improvement over the 2.x series. We hope you enjoy it!

What's new

3.1.1.Final provides a fast, distributed, hierarchical database that clients work with via the standard JCR 2.0 (JSR-283) API. ModeShape 3 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 has complete integration with JBoss AS 7.1, allowing deployed components to simply lookup and use repositories managed by ModeShape's service.

This release is a bug-fix release that includes 14 fixes (see below for details).

Features

ModeShape 3.1.1.Final 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.
