    ModeShape 2.6.0.Beta2 is available

    Randall Hauch Master

      I'm happy to announce that ModeShape 2.6.0.Beta2 is now available. The release artifacts are available in the JBoss Maven repository (see our Maven instructions) and on our downloads page. We've updated our Reference Guide, Getting Started Guide, and JavaDoc.


      Beta2 contains over a dozen fixes and minor improvements compared to Beta1, but they both include a number of significant changes and improvements over 2.5.0.Final:


      • kits for JBoss Application Server 5.x and 6.x
      • improved overall performance
      • new disk-based storage connector
      • added cache support in several connectors
      • pluggable authentication and authorization
      • the JPA connector now support configuring/using Hibernate 2nd-level cache
      • improved BINARY property support for large files
      • automatically use the JDK logger if SLF4J binding is not available
      • upgraded to Infinispan 4.2.1.Final
      • faster startup of the ModeShape engine
      • full support in the file system connector for 'mix:referenceable' and REFERENCE properties
      • over two dozen bug fixes


      Give ModeShape 2.6.0.Beta2 a try, and let us know if you have any problems. But don't wait too long, because we hope to wrap up the outstanding issues and release the Final version within a few weeks.


      Once again, the ModeShape community has done a great job. Thanks to you all!
