Release Notes for ModeShape 4.2.0.Final

This document outlines the changes that were made in ModeShape 4.2.0.Final. We hope you enjoy it!

What's new

4.2.0.Final provides a fast, elastic, distributed hierarchical database that clients work with via the standard JCR 2.0 (JSR-283) API. ModeShape 4 is a major upgrade over 3.x and offers significant improvements in clustering, performance, query, and events. All JCR 2.0 features are supported, and ModeShape 4 has complete integration with Wildfly 8, allowing deployed applications to simply lookup and use repositories managed by ModeShape's service.

ModeShape 4.2.0.Final is licensed under the Apache Software License, 2.0.

This release addresses 36 bugs and 9 enhancements, including several related to our Teiid and DDL sequencers. Our Wildfly kit now integrates directly with Wildfly's security services meaning that if a security domain is configured to use caching, ModeShape will take full advantage of this whenever session authentication operations are performed. Also, the local index provider now exposes several MapDB configuration options allowing for advanced performance tuning when this provider is used.


ModeShape 4.2.0.Final has these features:
