I am glad to announce a brand new beta release as we make progress toward IzPack 5.0.0!
This release brings bug fixes, Maven project cleanups / fixes as well as updates on the ini4j code. Another small yet useful change for those using the Maven plugin to build their IzPack installers: the authors section can now be populated from the developers of your POM.
As usual, this release is not production-ready, yet we need your feedback! Thanks for taking a few minutes to:
- download IzPack 5.0.0-beta5, and
- build your installers against it, and
- report problems.
IzPack 5.0.0-beta5 can be downloaded:
- as an installer, which is surprisingly based on IzPack, or
- using Maven: org.codehaus.izpack:izpack:5.0.0-beta5
Stay tuned for new beta releases soon, as we intend to keep on that pace!
Oh and one last thing: do not forget that you can help us making the final 5.0 release sooner :-)
I have created a page to reference some ideas for helping us, and you don't have to be a developer!
Do not hesitate to pick up a task or two from the list.
Looking forward to your contributions.
