Release 2.1.0.Final

This is the 2.1 release of ModeShape, and it introduces clustering, shareable nodes, a JBoss AS deployment kit, several other features and improvements, and bug fixes. ModeShape is a JCR 2.0 implementation that supports all of JCR 2.0 required features: repository acquisition, authentication, reading/navigating, query, export, node type discovery, and permissions and capability checking. ModeShape also implements most of the optional JCR 2.0 features: writing, import, observation, workspace management, versioning, locking, node type management, same-name siblings, shareable nodes, and orderable child nodes. The release also contains a host of other fixes and improvements.

ModeShape supports five query languages: the JCR-SQL2 and JCR-QOM query languages defined in JSR-283, the XPath, JCR-SQL query languages defined in JCR 1.0 (JSR-170), and a full-text search-engine-like language. For details, see the chapter on queries and search languages in the Reference Guide.

The 2.1.0.Final release has not yet been certified to be fully compliant with JCR 2.0. We've identified several issues in the TCK tests (see JCR-2648, JCR-2661, JCR-2662, and JCR-2663). Once an updated TCK becomes available, we'll get our certification.
