Highlights

Heritrix 3

This is the production release for NetarchiveSuite based on the new Heritrix3.

Java 8

NetarchiveSuite now requires java 8 to run.

More detailed jar file structure

The jar files now fit the application structure better. This means the deploy script should be updated to the follow application <-> jar file classpath definitions. See Updating deploy file jar definitions to 5.0.

Heritrix3 bundler zip now needs to be supplied in the deploy

The Heritrix3 crawler code has been moved into a separate zip file to allow more flexibility for choosing a concrete H3 version to use. This means that the HarvesterControllers deployment now needs to be configured with a extra H3 bundler zip. This can either be done as an argument to the deploy call or by defining a bundler for each HarvestControllerApplication in the deploy configuration.

Switch to Maven as build tool

The project is now build with Maven. This means that the jars, source-jars and javadoc jar can be found at the https://sbforge.org/nexus/content/groups/public/ repository and can be added as a normal maven dependency as: 

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.netarchivesuite</groupId>
  <artifactId>nas-module</artifactId>
  <version>${nas.version}</version>
</dependency>

Source moved to Github

The Netarchivesuite source code is now located at github here: https://github.com/netarchivesuite/netarchivesuite.
