Java’s most advanced repository reaches another important milestone, unveiling some new features for both the open source and Pro Versions.

Right off the back of their
union with continuous integration server Jenkins
, JFrog have
unleashed the latest version of the flagship product, with the
release of Artifactory 2.6

Java’s most advanced repository manager brings some vital new
features and improvements for enterprises, behind its sleek UI, to
make it fine choice for those wanting top notch permission control.
Artifactory’s easy linkup with build tools, such
as Maven, Ant, Ivy, Gradle, and its high-concurrency
approach have set the bar pretty high for enterprises repository

For the open source version, there’s the inclusion of
download debugging
, aiming to identify and solve artifact
resolution issues by getting a detailed explain plan of
the download request handling in your browser, as well as
introducing an auto-offline for remote repositories when
errors occur. 
Other benefits coming to the open
source version include the ability to turn on archive
browsing for selected trusted repositories.

For the Pro version targeted at the enterprise world, there’s a
raft of updates notably the latest versions of the REST API,
meaning Artifactory can return the latest release or integration
version of an artifact for any given repository layout.

It’s now possible to download the latest version of a
Maven snapshot via a simple non-unique snapshot URL and
also code custom artifact promotion logic. Improvements
come in the form of better replication and safer plugin

For all that is New and Notewothy, check out the
Artifactory Wiki
page. Download both the OSS and Pro versions
from JFrog’s
 or directly from SourceForge. Instructions for updating
from previous version can be found here

It’s a big milestone for the team with some nifty inclusions
this time round and we await to see what they do next…
