+Apache Jackrabbit 1.4 is fully compatible with the previous 1.x releases.
+A previous Apache Jackrabbit 1.x installation can be upgraded by replacing

+Jackrabbit 1.4 introduces the SPI layer described above, and in addition to
+it's earlier dependencies the jackrabbit-core component now also needs the
+jackrabbit-spi and jackrabbit-spi-commons components in the classpath.
