= Release notes for Gerrit 2.0.7
Gerrit 2.0.7 is now available in the usual location:
Of note is the WAR file doubled in size. This is due to the switch to openid4java for the OpenID relying party implementation, as it is more compliant to the OpenID 2.0 draft standard than the prior relying party, dyuproject.
Installation of openid4java may require installing Xalan/Xerces from the WAR into your application container's secure classes directory or something equally obtuse. Under stock Jetty it still works fine to just drop the WAR in. If you aren't using Jetty and are using OpenID authentication, be warned, the upgrade may be a bit harder than just dropping the WAR in due to Xalan/Xerces issues.
Gerrit is still Apache 2/MIT/BSD licensed, despite the switch of a dependency.
