Nexus Repository 3.9 Released with a new Upload UI and Firewall Support

We are pleased to announce the release of Nexus Repository 3.9. This release adds two major features:

  1. Components can now be uploaded directly from the UI
  2. Nexus Repository Pro is no longer required for Nexus Firewall support; OSS works just fine

You can check out the full release notes or download 3.9.0 immediately. As always, please reach out if you have any questions or feedback. Read on for more details about this release.

Upload components from the UI

As requested, you can now upload third-party components to a hosted repository directly from the UI itself. We heard feedback that many users find it inconvenient to upload components via build tools or the API, so this feature simplifies that experience.

This feature supports uploads to the following types of hosted repositories: Maven, Raw, npm, PyPI, NuGet, and RubyGems. For more details, see our upload documentation.

Nexus Firewall now supported on OSS

OSS vulnerabilities and bad licenses are everywhere. Sonatype has the world’s best information on OSS components, and you can benefit from this knowledge with Nexus Firewall. Firewall keeps bad components out of your repositories, and it now supports Nexus Repository OSS.

For more details on getting started with Nexus Firewall, see the quick start guide.
