Wikitty is a key/value storage and search system. A Java object or a relational table is frozen when writing code or creating a database. To make them evolve, you have to go back into the code, write a migration process, etc. It is also hard to maintain coherent code when you want to develop the same application for similar needs with only small differences. Between the common code and the specific code, it can easily become a real burden. Wikitty tries to answer those problems, bringing a technical solution which is easy to put into place and to use.
This release updates the solr and lucene version, an external authentication system has been added (LDAP-only for the moment), and the security services have been split between authorization and authentication. The Query system has been drastically reviewed, to have an easy way to write queries. Some bugs have been fixed.
