Csaba pinged me about cutting a new release of the Android Maven Plugin on the mailing list and here we are. After more mucking around and changes than I wanted to deal with (thanks Google Android team… sigh) I got a 4.4.2 release completed.
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.
This time it is just a quick heads up post. I have released version 5.0.0 of my progressive-organization-pom project. It is a Maven POM that manages the plugin versions of numerous popular and useful plugins to the latest available versions.
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.
Johan created a few bug fixes and pinged me for a new release. After some back and forth to make sure all is good .. here we are. A new release of the Android NDK Maven Plugin is available.
After the main Android Maven Plugin, it was time for a new release of the NDK counter part. So here you have it. I cut a new release with a bunch of fixes and improvements and a lot of project cleanup. So without further ado – the Android Maven Plugin team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.1.0 of the plugin.
It has been a while since the last release of the Android Maven Plugin, and things like holidays and setting up a new computer got into the way. But now I am all up and running on a Kubuntu VM for my development. So much better than using OSX! I am glad to be back in Linux land for all my development. Even if it is on a VM running on a OSX. Thanks to Oracle and VirtualBox that is possible. And there were a LOT of contributions since the 4.3.0 release and I ran into some trouble with 4.4.0 so here you have the changelog for the shiny, new 4.4.1 release.
