2009-02-02:    Pimento and Cinnamon Updates released

These releases contain primarily fixes and enhancements, especially the first Pimento Release Candidate had a few major issues with the Client Entity Cache, so everyone working with that release should switch to the new version.

There are two significant enhancements in addition to the fixes: Pimento now allows you to map custom UserTypes to Pimento PropertyTypes, so you are no longer limited to the builtin support for Hibernates core property types. The Cinnamon configuration has been enhanced to no longer require to specify a service interface. If ommitted the annotations will now be processed on the implementation. This was necessary to allow Cinnamon to be used with Grails. A blog post on how to setup Pimento with Grails can be found here.

You can download the new Pimento version here and the new Cinnamon version here.

These releases will be the last separate Pimento and Cinnamon releases. For Pimento 1.0.0 Final both projects will be merged, moving the Cinnamon code base to the Pimento SVN. This is merely an organizational change, since the releases for both projects usually needed to be synchronized anyway, it is not reasonable to stick to separare release cycles. This means that Cinnamon will also jump from version 0.3.1 to 1.0.0 for the next release. It has been stable for quite a while now and it is time to label it final. The modules will remain decoupled though so you can still use Cinnamon without Pimento if you don't need Pimento's data management capabilities.
