Subject [ANN] Apache Cayenne 4.0 final is released
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2018 12:13:41 GMT
Apache Cayenne team is glad to announce a long awaited final (general availability) release
of Cayenne 4.0. It is a really important milestone for the entire Cayenne community. Here
are some facts about this long journey:

* Development started: May 29, 2012 (back then it was called Cayenne 3.2)
* Intermediate development releases: 8
* Changes and new features: 218
* Issues fixed: 179
* Commits made: 2421
* Authors: 29

Many people have already been using various milestones, betas and RCs of 4.0, so the GA release
is a simple and straightforward upgrade for them. For those who were waiting for the official
"final" version before upgrading, this day is now. Among those ~ 400 tasks there are a lot
of cool features making everyday life of a Java developer easier:

* fluent query API, simple parameter bindings, aggregating and scalar queries; 
* better runtime assembly and extension mechanism;
* fresh CayenneModeler;
* working "Database-First" ORM flow;
* JCache integration; 
* database cryptography extensions; 
* Gradle ORM workflow plugins and much more	

In the coming weeks expect blog posts that explain what this all means. Follow us on Twitter
@ApacheCayenne to not miss the announcements, and feel free to start a conversation on the
user@ mailing list.

Thanks to everyone who made 4.0 possible!
