eXist v5.0.0-RC7 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-03-02 // over 3 years ago
  • v5.0.0-RC7 - March 2, 2019

    ๐Ÿš‘ eXist-db 5.0.0-RC7 is a hotfix release. Unfortunately the code restructuring performed in v5.0.0-RC6 caused failures in the Java Service Wrapper.
    ๐Ÿ This will especially impact Windows users, who typically start and stop eXist-db as a service. Using a service is the only way on Windows
    ๐Ÿš‘ to ensure eXist-db is properly stopped on system shutdown. We thus consider this critical and published a hotfix.

    ๐Ÿ› Bug Fixes

    • ๐Ÿ›  fix classpath for yajsw Java service wrapper
    • ๐Ÿ›  fix jnlp webstart for Java admin client
