My little Maven Repository Provisioner tool needed better support for a few use cases and I got those all implemented and cut a new release.
Wow. It has really been a year since the last release. A whole bunch of changes accumulated and are now available in the new 4.5.0 release for you all to enjoy.
Minor update with big impact this time from Johan and voila – here is a new release of the Android NDK Maven Plugin.
The ksoap2-android project has been in mostly maintenance mode for a long time, but it is still receiving lots of usage. Recently a very useful improvement came up in discussions around HTTP connections issues. The robust and powerful OKHttp library can be used to create an alternative transport. With the new 3.6.1 release I just created recently, you now have access to transport and service connection classes that use the latest OKHttp release. This will make your SOAP service connection more reliable across devices.
And it will also allow us to improve this even further – so what are you waiting for. Send me your own improvements.

Unbelievable how time flies – the Maven Repository Provisioner is nearly two years old. And it has been in production usage for well beyond a year already as well. So with some recent further improvements I decided to push it to 1.0.0 and ended up with a final 1.1.1 release recently. So what is the provisioner anyway?
I have been doing a lot of video tutorials in the past year or more. I should probably write about my tips on how to do that some time – not today though. Today I want to introduce you to a series of videos that will help you with publishing your artifacts to the Central Repository. After authoring a lot of the content for the Central Repository documentation, we set out to produce a short video series.
DevOpsDays are always a great event for a geek to attend. You get to chat to fellow hackers and coders and therefore people, who actually understand what you are talking about. The vibe that results from these conversations is always amazing. Presenting is definitely a challenge, but great if you can pull it off. Let’s see how I fared at DevOpsDays Vancouver 2016.
