Impala 1.0 RC4 was originally supposed to be the 1.0 final release. However, due to a few more than expected changes in this release, it was decided to have one last release candidate prior to 1.0 final.
The main changes in this release are:
- simplifications and enhancements in the mechanism for mapping web requests to modules, allowing for more intuitive arrangements of JSPs and resources within modules.
- modification of the starter application to use the multi-web module mechanism out of the box, as this is the recommended approach for building Impala web applications.
- the addition of Javadocs to the build artifacts (this is now required for artifacts deployed to the Maven central repository via Sonatype's infrastructure).
