New in Nexus Repository 3.24: Storage Optimization at Scale and NuGet V3 Hosted

  • Manage large terabytes of data from different repository components

Export for Raw and Maven formats can be used with Import functionality from Nexus Repository 3.23 release. Customers will be able to execute the new Import/Export tasks to solve the pain points above for Raw and Maven formats. The final milestone for the Export initiative (Read more...)
