JReleaser v1.0.0-RC1 has just been released! There’s only a handful of small fixes to be found in this release. However, the main change is the removal of all deprecated code. We recommend upgrading to 1.0.0-M3 first to find out if your build uses deprecated features before moving to 1.0.0-RC1. This is it. We’re on the home stretch to v1.0.0! Barring any blockers this means v1.0.0 should hit the streets in a couple of weeks. We simply could not have done it without the feedback we’ve received from early adopters. Thank you so much! As always, feedback is welcomed, feel free Read More

It’s quite straight forward to build and upload binaries as assets to a Git release but let’s face it, we can’t expect consumers to find the release page, select the appropriate binary for their platform, download the file, and configure their environment settings to point to the new binary.
