      Well, we thought the next release was going to be a beta release, but we've had a lot of great feedback fixed quite a few important issues with Alpha5 and wanted to get these fixes out as quickly as possible. So just two weeks after Alpha5 we've released 3.0.0.Alpha6 with the following:

      • Fixes to the ModeShape kit for AS7.1 to correct sequencers and persistence issues
      • Fixes for participating in JTA transactions
      • The WebDAV service is back
      • The local and remote JDBC drivers, which applications can use to issue JCR-SQL2 queries and get database metadata through the JDBC API
      • The "JcrEngine" class was renamed "ModeShapeEngine" (most applications don't use this and instead use the standard JCR API)
      • Several breaking changes were made to the way sequencers and other components are specified in the JSON configurations
      • ModeShape now passes 97% (1855/1905) of the unofficial (but corrected) TCK unit tests
      • About a dozen other fixes and improvements


      See the release notes for details. The release artifacts are available in the JBoss Maven repository, and our examples and documentation has been updated.

      If you've been working with the previous Alpha releases, we strongly suggest you upgrade to this Alpha as soon as possible and let us know via IRC or our forums if you run into any issues. And then get ready for 3.0.0.Beta1 in the next few weeks as soon as we finish full-text searching and shareable nodes.
