eXist-db 5.0.0 RC7

v5.0.0-RC7 - March 2, 2019

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. 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 to ensure eXist-db is properly stopped on system shutdown. We thus consider this critical and published a hotfix.

Bug Fixes

  • fix classpath for yajsw Java service wrapper
  • fix jnlp webstart for Java admin client
  • fix test failures depending on github location
