Repository Manager

Nexus Version 1.6 Released

Jessica Thornsby

New version of Nexus Professional, powered by Google Guice, and Nexus Open Source.

Nexus 1.6 is now available in both Nexus Open Source and Nexus Professional flavours.

Nexus is a repository manager that manages software artifacts required for development, deployment, and provisioning.

Nexus Open Source now supports auto block/unblock for unreachable remote repositories and a new User Interface (UI) for filing issues and reporting problems. This release removes the ‘public snapshots’ group from Nexus’ default configuration. Now, the only default repository group in Nexus Open Source is the ‘Public’ group.

With Nexus Professional 1.6, the Staging Profile can define a target promotion repository. Previously, the user had to select the target hosted repository when they were promoting a staging repository. The POM Validation now tests for the presence of repositories and plugin Repositories, and the Nexus REST API with Enunciate is fully documented. This version of Nexus Professional is powered by Google’s Guice, as oppose to the previous Plexus.

The Open Source edition can be downloaded now. Information on purchasing the Nexus Professional is available at the Sonatype website.
