Subject Cayenne 3.0M6 released
Date Fri, 29 May 2009 10:43:32 GMT
Another release on the journey to Cayenne 3.0! This milestone adds a  
plethora of new features including quoting of identifiers (useful for  
db column names with spaces), nested contexts in ROP, and EJBQL/ 
SQLTemplate/ProcedureQuery queries now support the full range of  
configuration options available to native SelectQueries. The Modeler  
received new features such schema analysis on startup (which can  
prompt the user to create or upgrade the database schema) and support  
for EJBQL. Naturally, lots of bug fixes have also made it into Cayenne  
in the last 5 months since the previous milestone.

The Cayenne team have also decided to not target JPA compliance for  
3.0, and instead focus on further improvements to the range and  
flexibility of the native API. Although Cayenne may return to focus on  
JPA in the future, the work done already (such as lifecycle events,  
EJBQL, etc) has been very useful and will remain important parts of  
Cayenne for everyone to use. Cayenne's clean and powerful API is one  
of the main reasons users choose this library and focussing our  
efforts there is our primary goal.

We hope you enjoy this latest release. There will probably be only one  
more release with new features before 3.0 is settled into beta  
testing, so we encourage everyone to try this latest milestone, and  
report back to us with any important missing functionality. We have  
several developers who track Cayenne trunk reasonably closely in  
production systems, so we are confident of the stability of this  
release. It is likely that there will be some API changes before the  
final 3.0 is released.
