I have posted a candidate for the jackrabbit-core 1.4.5 release at


See the RELEASE-NOTES.txt file (also included at the end of this
message) for details on release contents and latest changes. The
release candidate is a jar archive of the sources in
The MD5 checksum of the release package is:

   0497a4f36d013dac75b0b12725d468a8  jackrabbit-core-1.4.5-src.jar

Please vote on releasing this package as jackrabbit-core 1.4.5. The
vote is open until next Wednesday evening (weekend + 72 hours) and
passes if a majority of at least three +1 votes are cast. The vote is
open for everyone but only votes from Jackrabbit PMC members are

   [ ] +1 Release this package as jackrabbit-core 1.4.5
   [ ] -1 Do not release this package because...

Here's my +1.

As before, I have also included a pre-compiled binary and a staged
Maven repository produced from the packaged source. If this vote
passes, I will make these artifacts available to users along with the
official source release.

PS. See http://www.nabble.com/Release-auditing-guidelines-p8481069.html
for release auditing guidelines I wrote last year.

Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit Core -- Version 1.4.5


This is the 1.4.5 patch release of the jackrabbit-core component of
Apache Jackrabbit, a fully conforming implementation of the Content
Repository for Java Technology API (JCR).

This release fixes various issues, including a change to some default
persistence manager configuration settings (JCR-1562). Users who are
relying on the default username, password, or schema name settings for
database-based persistence should check their configuration when upgrading
to this release. See below for the full list of changes in this release.

See the Apache Jackrabbit website at http://jackrabbit.apache.org/ for
more information.

Release Contents

Unlike previous Jackrabbit releases that contained a full set of components,
this patch release only contains the jackrabbit-core component. The component
is distributed both as a source archive and a pre-compiled binary.

    * Source archive (jackrabbit-core-1.4.5-src.jar)

        The source archive contains the full source code of this release
        in a "jackrabbit-core-1.4.5" directory. Use the following commands
        (or the equivalent in your environment) to build the component
        with Maven 2 and Java 1.4 or higher:

          $ jar xf jackrabbit-core-1.4.5-src.jar
          $ cd jackrabbit-1.4.5
          $ mvn install

    * Pre-compiled binary (jackrabbit-core-1.4.5.jar)

        Core of the Apache Jackrabbit content repository implementation.

See the included README.txt file for more information.

Each release file is accompanied by SHA1 and MD5 checksums and a PGP
signature. The public key used for the signatures can be found
in the KEYS file.
