-Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 1.6.0
+Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 1.6.1
-Apache Jackrabbit 1.6 is an incremental feature release. While
-remaining compatible with previous releases, Jackrabbit 1.6 introduces
-a number of new features, improvements and fixes to known issues.
+Apache Jackrabbit 1.6.1 is a bug fix release that fixes issues reported
+against previous releases. This release is fully compatible with the
+earlier 1.6.0 release.
-The most notable changes in this release are:
-    * The RepositoryCopier tool makes it easy to backup and migrate
-      repositories (JCR-442). There is also improved support for selectively
-      copying content and version histories between repositories (JCR-1972).
-    * A new WebDAV-based JCR remoting layer has been added to complement
-      the existing JCR-RMI layer (JCR-1877, JCR-1958).
-    * Query performance has been further optimized (JCR-1820, JCR-1855
-      and JCR-2025).
-    * Added support for Ingres and MaxDB/SapDB databases (JCR-1960, JCR-1527).
-    * Session.refresh() can now be used to synchronize a cluster node
-      with changes from the other nodes in the cluster (JCR-1753).
-    * Unreferenced version histories are now automatically removed once
-      all the contained versions have been removed (JCR-134).
+Changes in this release
-    * Standalone components like the JCR-RMI layer and the OCM framework
-      have been moved to a separate JCR Commons subproject of Jackrabbit,
-      and are not included in this release. Updates to those components
-      will be distributed as separate releases.
+This release fixes the following issues:
-    * Development preview: There are even more JSR 283 features in
-      Jackrabbit 1.6 than were included in the 1.5 version. These new
-      features are accessible through special "jsr283" interfaces in
-      the Jackrabbit API. Note that none of these features are ready
-      for production use, and will be replaced with final JCR 2.0 versions
-      in Jackrabbit 2.0.

-Upgrading to Jackrabbit 1.6
-Apache Jackrabbit 1.6 is fully compatible with the previous 1.x releases.
-A previous Apache Jackrabbit 1.x installation can be upgraded by replacing
-the relevant jar files with the new versions and adding some new dependencies.
-No changes to repository contents are needed.
-The Lucene dependency was upgraded to 2.4.1. Note that Jackrabbit 1.6 only
-works with this version of Lucene, not with earlier versions and possibly
-not even with later versions due to the tight integration with Lucene
-internals (JCR-1855).
-The POI dependency was upgraded to 3.2-FINAL.
-Repository configuration has been extended with options for the repository
-lock mechanism. No changes to existing configuration files are needed unless
-you need to use this new feature (JCR-1605).
