Subject Re: user management
Date Wed, 03 Mar 2010 00:20:31 GMT
Actually I am working to migrated my application from 1.4 to 1.5
(almost done) and after that I will switch to 1.6. I expect a less
traumatic process from 1.5 to 1.6 than form 1.4 to 1.5 :)

As I have seen in the backwards compatiblity notes in jackrabbit 2.0
there are two potentially dangerous issues with the JSR 283 security


So, I think better to maintain my own access manager by now.

Thank Angela.
