Based on work by Angela, I have posted a candidate for the
jackrabbit-jcr-server 1.4.1 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:

    9665e646337a43e854765fa9fa89d0e3  jackrabbit-jcr-server-1.4.1-src.jar

Please vote on releasing this package as jackrabbit-jcr-server 1.4.1.
The vote is open for the next 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 binding.

    [ ] +1 Release this package as jackrabbit-jcr-server 1.4.1
    [ ] -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 JCR Server -- Version 1.4.1

list of changes in this release.

Release Contents

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

        The source archive contains the full source code of this release
        in a "jackrabbit-jcr-server-1.4.1" 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-jcr-server-1.4.1-src.jar
          $ cd jackrabbit-1.4.1
          $ mvn install

        Server implementations within the Apache Jackrabbit project.
