==== Changes since RC1

RC1 was commit d4e7063e

JENA-1516: TDB ObjectFileStorage fix.

Update links below.

==== Process Changes

MD5 files are being discouraged because MD5 is not secure.  Projects are now asked to not publish md5.

There are no md5 files in the proposed dist/jena area - files on Apache hardware.

There are sha1 and sha512 checksums.
* The sha512 is in Linux sha512sum checkable format.
* The sha1 is whatever maven generated and is the same as will go to maven central.

Having the sha1 ties the dist/jena artifacts to maven central (as does the .asc).

There are md5 and sha1 in the proposes maven repo staging area for sending to maven central. That part of maven is hardwired to md5/sha1 still.

There's a script to setup the sha512.

To establish the proof chain for signed artifacts in /dist/project/, I have been asked to try out the new META files.

There are two files


META says who signs what, and is itself signed by the PMC chair.
