Jarviz 0.1.0 has been released!

I’m excited to announce the first Jarviz release. v0.1.0 is here! What is Jarviz you may ask, it’s a brand new CLI tool that can inspect JAR files and provide insight on their contents. I build tools as a hobby. Some of these tools require Java 8 as a baseline because consumers may not have upgraded to recent versions of Java. As such tools must ensure their dependencies are compatible and do not contain bytecode higher than 52 (Java 8). I use the EnforceBytecodeVersion rule for Maven or Gradle given the build tool of choice for a particular tool. Yet Read More

JReleaser release cadence

Since the early days JReleaser has had 2 release paths: fast & slow. The fast path is the early-access release, posted every time a commit is pushed to the main branch. This type of release allows early adopters to test out new features as soon as they are added to the main branch. Consumers of the jreleaser/release-action GitHub Action can take advantage of the version property exposed by said action to select this release. Early Access releases are intended to be downloaded manually as they might be unstable and as such only CLI related artifacts are posted. There are NO Read More


JReleaser 1.2.0 has been released!

We’ve also merged contributions from 4 new contributors: Margarita Nedzelska, Alexius Diakogiannis, Guillaume Smet, Aiden Turner.

The newly added Download step lets you download files (assembly assets, templates, etc) from different sources such as FTP, HTTP, SCP, and SFTP. Read More

The day has come. JReleaser v1.0.0 is here! I’m beyond ecstatic to post this announcement as this release is the culmination of multiple efforts made by all contributors, taking into account feedback received by several early adopters, some of which can be seen here.
