Apache Roller 6 released!

12.30.2019 by Dave Johnson | 0 Comments

The Apache Roller community is pleased to announce the release of Apache Roller 6.0.0, the latest and greatest release of Roller. For more details of the changes introduced with this new version please refer to the release notes in JIRA. In summary, Roller 6 is a new version of Roller with these features:

  • Web interface has been rewritten to use Twitter bootstrap via the Struts 2 Bootstrap tags.
  • Most dependencies have been upgraded to the latest version.
  • Compiled with Java 11 and requires Java 11.
  • The installation guide has been converted from OpenOffice to AsciiDocs.

It should be relatively easy to upgrade from Roller 5.2.4 to Roller 6 because there are no changes to the database schema (that means you can easily roll back if you find problems). The user interface is different and we hope you'll find it better, easier to use, more intuitive and with a more modern feel.

Thanks to the many contributors to Roller for this new release. We hope you'll enjoy and find it useful.
