The Apache Jackrabbit community is pleased to announce the release of
version 1.4.9 of the jackrabbit-core component. The release is
available for download at:


See below for the release notes.

You can upgrade an existing Apache Jackrabbit 1.4 installation to use
the new jackrabbit-core 1.4.9 component simply by replacing a previous
jackrabbit-core-1.4.x.jar file with jackrabbit-core-1.4.9.jar.

Note that the latest recommended version of Apache Jackrabbit is
1.5.3, and that this release is only targeted to users who are not yet
able to upgrade from Jackrabbit 1.4.
