7.8.6 release notes

November 25, 2013

We are happy to announce the availability of Hippo-CMS 7.8.6. This update adds more stability compared to the earlier version 7.8.5 by solving few blockers and having them run on production successfully without new issues. For the projects running on 7.8.x series we strongly recommend this upgrade. Bootstrap new projects from archetype 1.07.06.

These new versions of the dependencies have been available for a while, now they are bundled in this release. If the project has been using these dependencies having in project's pom file, please remove while using this maintenance release. We encourage all projects to remain on the regular maintenance release. Using a tagged artifact that is not yet part of a maintenance release should only be done if there is a specific reason and only after testing in your specific project setup.
