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