Changes in this release

Jackrabbit 2.1 is an incremental feature release based on the earlier 2.0 release. The most notable changes in this release are:

 * Remoting improvements. Both the WebDAV and RMI remoting layers have been extended to support a wider subset of JCR 2.0 functionality and include numerous other improvements and bug fixes over previousreleases. We recommend the WebDAV layer as the primary remoting option, with the RMI layer as a secondary option if more functionality is needed.

 * Command line repository access. The jackrabbit-standalone jar now contains a simple command line tool for browsing and modifying both local and remote repositories.

 * Improved JCA packaging. The jackrabbit-jca package can now be used to enable JCA-based access to any JCR repository that supports the JCR 2.0 RepositoryFactory interface.
