IIRC, the only changes needed should be in the scratchpad for HSMF. (Patch 
for that in Jira). In general, anything in the scratchpad is subject to 
change its API, as we normally still need to do major work to implement 
funcationality. Stuff in the main jar should be compatible (or largely so) 
between releases

Was there a change needed for things other than HSMF?

(FWIW, if you apply all the patches from me currently pending in Tika's 
jira, it ought to compile just fine against the release candidate jars, as 
I did a custom tika build using them earlier this week)
