-Apache Jackrabbit 1.4 is an incremental feature release. While
-remaining compatible with previous releases, Jackrabbit 1.4 introduces
-a number of new features, improvements and fixes to known issues. The
-most notable new features in this releases are the new object mapping
-and service provider components for JCR. The Jackrabbit content
-repository implementation has been enhanced with a new storage model
-for binary content, a much improved query and indexing system, and
-many fixes and improvements especially for concurrent access. Many
-smaller improvements and bug fixes are also included all over the
-codebase.

 Release Contents
 ----------------
 
-The release consists of a single source archive and a number of
-pre-compiled binary component archives.
-
-    * Jackrabbit source code (jackrabbit-1.4-src.jar)
-
-        The main source archive contains a "jackrabbit-1.4-src" directory
-        with the full released source code and build environment. Use the
-        following commands (or the equivalent in your system) to build all
-        the released components with Maven 2 and Java 1.4:
-
-          $ jar xf jackrabbit-1.4-src.jar
-          $ cd jackrabbit-1.4-src
-          $ mvn install
-
-        The OCM components require Java 5 or higher, and you need to
-        build them separately:
-        
-          $ (cd jackrabbit-ocm; mvn install)
-          $ (cd jackrabbit-ocm-nodemanagement; mvn install)
-
-The components contained in the released source archive are listed below
-(with the pre-compiled binary archives in parenthesis):
-
-    * Jackrabbit API (jackrabbit-api-1.4.jar)

-        Core of the Apache Jackrabbit content repository implementation.
-
-    * Jackrabbit Text Extractors (jackrabbit-text-extractors-1.4.jar)
-
-        Text extractor classes that allow Jackrabbit to extract text content

-
-    * Jackrabbit JCR-RMI (jackrabbit-jcr-rmi-1.4.jar)
-
-        RMI network layer for the JCR API.
-
-    * Jackrabbit WebDAV Library (jackrabbit-webdav-1.4.jar)
-
-        Interfaces and common utility classes used for building a
-        WebDAV server or client.
-
-    * Jackrabbit JCR Server (jackrabbit-jcr-server-1.4.jar)
-
-        WebDAV servlet implementations based on JCR.
+This release consists of a single source archive (jackrabbit-1.5.0-src.jar)
+that contains all the Apache Jackrabbit components. Use the following
+commands (or the equivalent in your system) to build the release with
+Maven 2 and Java 1.4 or higher:
 
-    * Jackrabbit JCR Servlets (jackrabbit-jcr-servlet-1.4.jar)
+    jar xf jackrabbit-1.5.0-src.jar
+    cd jackrabbit-1.5.0-src
+    mvn install
 
-        Set of servlets and other classes designed to make it easier to use
-        Jackrabbit and other JCR content repositories in web applications.
+Note that the OCM components require Java 5 or higher, and are not included
+in the build when using Java 1.4.
 
-    * Jackrabbit Repository Classloader (jackrabbit-classloader-1.4.jar)
+The source archive is accompanied by SHA1 and MD5 checksums and a PGP
+signature that you can use to verify the authenticity of your download.
+The public key used for the PGP signature can be found at
+https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/dist/KEYS.
 
-        Java classloader for loading classes from JCR content repositories.
+The build will result in the following components (with artifactIds in
+parenthesis) being built and installed in your local Maven repository.
+Pre-built binary artifacts of these components are also available on
+the Jackrabbit download page and on the central Maven repository.
 
-    * Jackrabbit Web Application (jackrabbit-webapp-1.4.war)
