Release

4.0

Description

The goal of this release is to continue adding features and evolving the API.

More specifically:

  • Basic API (handler) for Multiple authentication mechanisms
  • Qualifiers for build-in authentication mechanisms
  • In-memory identity store

 

Removals, deprecations or backwards incompatible changes

  • Remove references to the SecurityManager (as listed here: https://github.com/search?q=repo%3Ajakartaee%2Fsecurity%20SecurityManager&type=code)
  • Build-in authentication mechanisms now have a qualifier by default, whereas before they were unqualified

(Note, Jakarta Security does not use the SecurityManager explicitly, but it shows up as a somewhat internal detail in the API code)
