Hi all,

Some people reported concurrency issues which resulted from a
misconfiguration in their custom repository.xml. So, if you have a
custom repository.xml in your project and are using CMS 7.1 (2.06.xx)
or newer, please make sure that you have the following line:

    <ISMLocking class="org.apache.jackrabbit.core.state.FineGrainedISMLocking"/>

At the following two places:
- in the workspace block at the end
- in the versioning block at the end

For an example see:

If you don't have those lines and have already deployed your site or
CMS you also have to check the workspace.xml file which can be found
in the storage (or repository index) folder at
workspace/default/workspace.xml. Again the line has to be added at the
end of the workspace block.
