Each new version of the framework comes with Release Notes, which new features, improvements and bug fixes. These usually include migration notes that explain how to migrate to new features / away from deprecated or removed features.

Updating your App

If your app inherits from the Parent POM, then the easiest way to update to the next release is often as simple as changing the <version> in your application’s parent pom.xml:

    <version>2.0.0</version>                            (1)
1 update as required.

Nightly Builds

If you like to live on the bleeding edge, there are also nightly builds of the framework.

  • Packages (ASF hosted)

    Requires github credentials to download packages

  • Packages (not ASF hosted)

    Packages can be downloaded without authentication.

  • Website preview (not ASF hosted)

Although these are maintained and used by the framework’s committers, do be aware that these are not official ASF releases; they are provided as a convenience only.

Building from Source

If you want though you can also download the source code and build it directly.
