If you have questions about a specific feature, contact nexus-feedback@sonatype.com.

OBR 

We aim to provide support for every format available. However, we also have to prioritize according to the needs of our customers. If you want to see OBR supported, check out the Nexus Repository Manager JIRA project and add a comment with your support.

P2 

Like OBR, we plan to support P2, and really any format. However, because we prioritize based on feedback from our users, this one’s a little further down the list. If you want to see P2 supported, check out the Nexus Repository Manager Public JIRA project and add a comment with your support.

Smart Proxy 

In an upcoming version of Nexus Repository Manager Pro we’ll be introducing a distributed replication approach that allows for simplified replication of content between repository manager instances.

Custom Metadata

The Custom Metadata feature has been replaced with the new component tagging feature.

REST 

Nexus Repository Manager ships with a full featured REST API.  It is a completely new (and better) implementation than the one that shipped with Nexus 2.x.

Plugins 

There are are number of plugins available for Nexus 3, and more coming all the time. View the entire list of plugins at Nexus Exchange. If you’ve created a Nexus Repository Manager plugin, reach out to our Community Advocate, and we’ll help you through the process of getting it out to other Nexus Repository users. 

Stage & Build Promotion 

Nexus Repository Manager 3.11.0 and higher ship with a completely new staging implementation.
