The Apache Archiva team is pleased to announce the release of Archiva 1.1

Archiva is a build artifact repository manager for use with build tools such
as Maven, Continuum and Ant.

It has features like repository search and browse, securing repositories,
identifying unknown artifacts and reporting of repository problems.

Aside from these, it can also act as a nearby (proxy) cache of popular
global repositories.

The latest release is now available here:

New in Archiva 1.1

* Artifact Uploads

To simplify adding artifacts to a repository, an upload form has been put in place that allows you to put an artifact and POM into the repository without the need for the Maven deploy-file command.


RSS is now available for getting a feed of new artifacts being added to a given repository. Two types of feeds are generated by Archiva: new artifacts in a repository and new versions of a specific artifact.

* Virtual Repositories

Virtual repositories or repository groups allows downloading from a group of repositories via one url (group url).

* Timeouts

Connections to remote repositories can now have a configurable timeout value

* New Runtime Bundle

The application is now distributed using Jetty 6.1 and it's documented configuration, rather than the previous Plexus application server bundle. It continues to use the Java Service Wrapper (v3.2.3) for application monitoring, though the configuration has been improved, particularly with regard to separating the application configuration from the installation.

* Using Spring

Archiva now uses the Spring Framework as it's underlying container instead of Plexus. This results in a boost in performance and stability for the web application in particular.

* Using Apache Jackrabbit WebDAV Servlet

Archiva now uses Apache Jackrabbit's WebDAV servlet for serving repository content instead of plexus-webdav. The change results in reduced codebase complexity, increased standards compliance, better webdav client support and a small peformance boost.
