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.

Building from Source

You can also download the source code and build it directly.

Interim Builds

If you want to track the latest developments, there are also nightly builds and weekly builds.

Although these are maintained by the framework’s committers, do be aware that these are not official ASF releases.
