Release Notes for ModeShape 4.3.0.Final

This document outlines the changes that were made in ModeShape 4.3.0.Final. We hope you enjoy it!

What's new

ModeShape 4 is a major upgrade over 3.x and offers significant improvements in clustering, performance, query, and events. All JCR 2.0 (JSR-283) 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 4.3.0.Final is licensed under the Apache Software License, 2.0.

This release addresses 18 bugs and 11 enhancements, the most important of which being that of moving to Infinispan 7.2.0.Final. This version of Infinispan has serveral fixes and improvements since Infinispan 6, including a fix for MODE-2280. This change meant, however, that our Wildfly integration kit had to be adapted in order to be able to integrate with Infinispan in library mode rather than via the Wildfly subsystem.

* If you're using the Wildfly kit, when moving to ModeShape 4.3.0.Final you will have to update your cache configuration as described in this section of the documentation*

In addition to the Infinispan related changes, we've enhanced the Backup & Restore API allowing a more fine-grained control over what parts of a repository are backed up and then restored. We've also added the ability to perform a full repository backup & restore via the REST Service
