The messaging team is pleased to announce the release of JBoss Messaging 1.4.0.CR1.
This is a candidate release for JBoss Messaging 1.4.0.
This release fixes several important bugs from the previous release, full details of which can be found in the release notes.
The other major changes in this release relate to a simplification in clustering configuration.
The clustered and non clustered post offices have merged to give a single post office which can work both in a cluster and standalone.
The cluster router and message pull policies have been completely removed since it was identified that users were having trouble configuring this properly, and frankly they were too complex too configure.
The idea from now on is that clustering should work pretty much out of the box with little or no configuration. That goal has been achieved in 1.4.0.CR1, where distributed queues and topics act as distributed queues and topics without you having to configure anything.
JBoss Messaging 1.4.0 is also Java 5 only. This is because we build against JBoss AS 4.2 whose libraries are built against Java 5 only. We need to have our libraries synched up with AS 4.2 in order to be fully integrated with it.
