This is mainly a bugfix release, see detailed change log at the bottom of the page.
Upgraded to Java8
Updating from 1.3
A Java8 JVM is now requered to run the reference components
A Tomcat8 is required to run the new webservices.
A new setting for determining whether a ReferencePillar is a FileReferencePillar or ChecksumReferencePillar, PillarType (under PillarSettings). This is instead of the deprecated 'reference-pillar.sh' and 'checksum-pillar.sh' scripts. The setting is mandatory for pillars, and it must be either 'FILE' or 'CHECKSUM'.
A new optional setting for FileReferencePillar VerifyDataConsistencyOnMessage (under PillarSettings) to determine whether to actually check the data on the disk when receiving a message, or just refer to the data in the database.
MaxChecksumAge (in the IntegrityServiceSettings) for a specific pillar can now be set to 0, which ignores checks for obsolete checksums (recommended especially for ChecksumPillars).
