Apache Tika 3.0.0-BETA

The most notable changes in Tika 3.0.0 over the previous release are:

  • Require Java 11 (TIKA-4128).
  • The boilerpipe handler has been moved to the tika-handler-boiler-pipe package (TIKA-4138).

  • Upgrade to PDFBox 3.0.1 (TIKA-3347)
  • Deprecated AbstractParser for removal in 4.x (TIKA-4132).
  • Fix bug in DateUtils that stripped timezone information fromincoming Calendar objects (TIKA-4126).
