64bit Windows Wrapper Support
JIRA Ticket: https://issues.sonatype.org/browse/NEXUS-3844
We have compiled the 64 bit windows libraries for jsw 3.2.3 and now include them in our distributions of Nexus.
Maven 3 Metadata
JIRA Ticket: https://issues.sonatype.org/browse/NEXUS-3806
Maven 3 generates Maven-metadata with extra content that prior versions of Nexus wouldn't accept. Nexus now handles this metadata change, without complaining.
Also, if you find yourself stuck on an older release of Nexus for some particular reason, you can download this patched jar file to make your Nexus (back to version 1.3.6) work with Maven 3 deployed metadata:
Simply install this jar file in (install-dir)/runtime/app/nexus/lib
Make sure to remove the existing mercury-md-shared-1.0-alpha-6.jar file.
