A release candidate for the upcoming Grouper v1.1 is now available for download. It is available from the Grouper software download site <>.

We anticipate releasing Grouper v1.1 on Friday, November 3rd (2006!), barring the revelation of any particularly nasty bugs in RC1.

Grouper v1.1 is mostly a maintenance release: some outstanding bugs were fixed and there's been a little internal reorganization. But the public API has been extended in 3 ways:

. Several new GrouperQuery filters have been added, particularly to facilitate provisioning of Grouper groups to external containers.

. The XML import/export capabilities of the XML Import/Export Tool have been incorporated into the API by the XmlImporter, XmlExporter, and XmlReader classes. But please note that we consider this portion of the API to be experimental and subject to change.

. An existing method to assign a new subjectId to an existing Member has been complemented with another to assign it a new sourceId as well.

Two other changes are noteworthy. First, by default Hibernate caching is now disabled. It can be enabled by a declaration in the file.

Second, and more importantly, the column order in one table in the underlying database has been changed, producing a substantial performance improvement for certain operations. Grouper 1.1 will work with a Grouper 1.0 database, but to reap the performance improvement it is necessary to make a corresponding conversion to the database. Details of how to accomplish this will soon appear in the Grouper wiki. I'll notify the list when it's there.
