remain open until it passes with a majority of at least three +1 River 
Incubator PMC votes or until a valid objection causes its rejection.

All are encouraged to show their support by validating and casting a 
vote for this release, please ensure you reply to both lists, so those

  Apache River
  v2.1.2 Release Notes

Apache River is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator. Incubation is
required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates
that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process
have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF
projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the
completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project
has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.

Apache River is aimed at the development and advancement of the River
technology core infrastructure. River technology is a service oriented
architecture that defines a programming model which both exploits and
extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure,
distributed systems which are adaptive to change.


    Notes of Interest for this Release

This second release from the Apache River project is based on the
contributions of Sun's Jini Technology Starter Kit (Starter Kit) v2.1
and Service UI from Artima. The release focuses on merging the two
contributions together, structuring separate src and bin releases, and
amending the source and documentation naming/versioning/etc to the
Apache River project.

Some points of note:

    * NOTICE file and source license headers updated
    * Source and documentation updated for release name ("Apache River
      release") and version ("v2.1.2")
    * Graphical installer (which was a 3rd party application in the
      Starter Kit) is no longer available
    * The combined source and binary release in the Starter Kit has been
      separated into two releases: src and bin
    * The "logstore" implementation of com.sun.jini.outrigger.Store has
      been removed

      The persistent version of Outrigger relies on a pluggable
      persistence layer, |com.sun.jini.outrigger.Store|. Previous
      releases of the Starter Kit included two implementations of the
      Store interface, /logstore/ and /snaplogstore/. This release
      removes logstore.

      Logstore has been around in various forms since the 1.0 version of
      Outrigger. Snapstore was introduced in v2.1 of the Starter Kit.

      The v2.0.n releases of the Starter Kit used logstore as the
      default Store implementation, this release has no default Store.
      In order to switch an existing set of configuration files,
      security policy files, etc., from using logstore to snaplogstore,
      you will need to change the ||
      configuration entry (or add a store configuration entry if you
      don't already have one) to yield a
      |com.sun.jini.outrigger.snaplogstore.LogStore| object. You will
      also need to ensure that |outrigger-snaplogstore.jar| has been
      granted sufficient permissions (see Outrigger's package
      documentation for a sample security policy file.).

      Note that depending on the nature of your application snaplogstore
      can have a significantly different performance profile than logstore.

      The storage formats used by snaplogstore and logstore are mutually
