On behalf of the IzPack team, I am pleased to announce the availability of IzPack 5.0.0-beta2!

This release is a bit less buggy since it corrects IZPACK-612, thanks to Michael for his feedback.

We will try to resolve tickets and release new beta version rapidly so keep testing and give us feedback (or better, some patches with nice tests).

On behalf of the IzPack team, I am pleased to announce the availability of IzPack 5.0.0-beta1!

IzPack has been under heavy work for a year. The code has been heavily refactored with the switch to Maven, the usage of PicoContainer and an extensive test suite. Meanwhile, we still have received lots of contributions and fixes.

We now need the larger IzPack community to give this codebase a try, and report issues (or even better: patches to fix them).

Big thanks go to Anthonin, Rene, David and the others for the insane refactoring work! You can now reward them by giving us your feedback.

(thumbs up)  Finally, and if you are not too angry at us after testing this beta and seeing that your pretty installers just don't work anymore, you can show us your love:

Thanks again to everyone involved in this work, and see you soon for a (hopefuly!) less buggy beta2 (smile)

IzPack goes social!

We are glad to announce that IzPack is now present on social networks!

This is also the occasion to announce that IzPack 5 is on its way and under active development, and that the website will receive updates soon.

Stay tuned (wink)
