Release Notes for ModeShape 3.6.0.Final

This document outlines the changes that were made in ModeShape 3.6.0.Final. We hope you enjoy it!

What's new

3.6.0.Final provides a fast, elastic, 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 EAP 6.1, allowing deployed components to simply lookup and use repositories managed by ModeShape's service.

This release addesses 54 issues, many of which are bug fixes in lots of areas. The release improves even more the file system connector so that very large files (even dozens of GB) can be effectively accessed (MODE-2061). It is also now possible for clients to programmatically invoke sequencers against transient content, with the output of the sequencers remaining in transient state that will be saved when the session is saved (MODE-1467). The ModeShape kit for EAP now supports both EAP 6.1.0 and 6.1.1, and now supports EAP's domain mode (tech preview, MODE-2026). We also introduced a new Repository Explorer web application that enables using your browser to visually explore the ModeShape content (MODE-1820). This web application is automatically included with the ModeShape kit for EAP and is available for use on other servers.
