Footnotes

  1. There is a possibility of a breaking change to Embedded or REST API use due the need to change the User Role enumeration from a Java enum to an enum-style class to support this feature. Bringing in the upgraded Obsidian library and compiling should reveal any such broken use of these enumerations. Needed changes should be minor and self-explanatory.
  2. If you are using automated installer files from previous releases, you will need to add a new section of xml as of Obsidian 4.10.0 to handle a new UserInputPanel. Immediately after the UserInputPanel.15 closing brace, add the following:
    <com.izforge.izpack.panels.UserInputPanel id="UserInputPanel.16">
    <userInput>
    <entry key="script.beanshell" value="true"/>
    <entry key="script.jruby" value="false"/>
    <entry key="script.groovy" value="true"/>
    <entry key="script.jython" value="true"/>
    </userInput>
    </com.izforge.izpack.panels.UserInputPanel>
    

    You can change the parameter values as desired. The above reflects the options for all versions prior to Obsidian 4.10.0.
