- Document.CheckIn:
    version: minor
    comment: Automatic checkin after validation


CMIS Rendition

Renditions from the RenditionService are now exposed as CMIS renditions of kind "nuxeo:rendition", with a name that's based on Rendition name. For example "nuxeo:rendition:pdf" for the "pdf" rendition.

Nuxeo CMIS content streams support HTTP cache and last modified headers.

We have also added locking at 2 levels:
