Announcing a new release of MyDas - version 1.6.7

Please see https://code.google.com/p/mydas/

A new version of MyDAS is now available. In this version the old oscache
framework code has been completely removed, as this was causing problems
for DAS services with a heavy load. The OpenSymphony oscache project is no
longer developed or supported and so it was felt appropriate to remove this

If you wish to upgrade to version 1.6.7, you should remove the following
method from your implementation of

// Remove your implementation of this method to upgrade to version 1.6.7
public void registerCacheManager(CacheManager cacheManager);

As a consequence, MyDAS no longer includes any embedded caching mechanism.
If you need caching, we recommend the use of ehcache web page caching (
http://ehcache.org/documentation/recipes/pagecaching) which is extremely
lightweight and reliable, requiring no code changes, just some minor
changes to the web.xml file and the inclusion of a configuration file.

This release is available from the MyDas maven repository - just upgrade
your maven dependency to use version 1.6.7
