Subject [VOTE] Release Apache Jackrabbit 1.5.6
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 10:14:19 GMT
Hi,

I have posted a candidate for the Apache Jackrabbit 1.5.6 release at

    http://people.apache.org/~jukka/jackrabbit/1.5.6/

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
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/tags/1.5.6. The SHA1
checksum of the jackrabbit-1.5.6-src.jar release package is
e80781ea3d00a383744137c795fa97b0452142f4.

Please vote on releasing this package as Apache Jackrabbit 1.5.6. The
vote is open for the next 72 hours and passes if a majority of at
least three +1 Jackrabbit PMC votes are cast.

    [ ] +1 Release this package as Apache Jackrabbit 1.5.6
    [ ] -1 Do not release this package because...

With the source release I have also included pre-compiled binaries for
the main deployment packages (webapp, jca, standalone) as well as a
staged Maven repository containing pre-compiled versions of all the
components that have been changed since 1.5.5.

If this vote passes, I will make the source release and the deployment
packages available on the Jackrabbit download page and publish the
other binaries in the central Maven repository.

Here's my +1.

BR,

Jukka Zitting


Release Notes -- Apache Jackrabbit -- Version 1.5.6

Introduction
------------

Apache Jackrabbit is a fully conforming implementation of the Content
Repository for Java Technology API (JCR). A content repository is a
hierarchical content store with support for structured and unstructured
content, full text search, versioning, transactions, observation, and
more. See the Jackrabbit web site at http://jackrabbit.apache.org/ for
more information.

Apache Jackrabbit 1.5.6 is a bug fix release that fixes issues reported
against previous releases. This release is fully compatible with the
earlier 1.5.x releases.

Release Contents
----------------

This release consists of a single source archive (jackrabbit-1.5.6-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:

    jar xf jackrabbit-1.5.6-src.jar
    cd jackrabbit-1.5.6
    mvn install

Note that the OCM components require Java 5 or higher, and are not included
in the build when using Java 1.4.

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.
