Release Notes for ModeShape 3.7.0.Final

This document outlines the changes that were made in ModeShape 3.7.0.Final. We hope you enjoy it!

What's new

3.7.0.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 36 issues, including several significant performance improvements. We were able to do a fair amount of profiling under load, and identified performance bottlenecks in the workspace cache (MODE-2123), in the indexing (MODE-2124), and when creating names (MODE-2124). We also identified several areas that were posing a problem when concurently updating the same node from many threads (MODE-2120, MODE-2121, MODE-2122). Other fixes improve the stability and functionality of our JCR implementation.


ModeShape 3.7.0.Final has these features:
