Mark, along with co-host Greg's ongoing discussions and arguments relating to the Java/JVM and general development/language space with an Auckland and New Zealand focus. Contact Us

Nov 15, 2021

Once again it's been a long time coming between episodes, Auckland's recent extended Covid lock down and Mark's unscheduled and temporary relocation meant we missed out on discussion the release of Java 17 - and with Java 18 not all that far away, we thought it was about time to once again get our record on.

Andres Almiray once again joins us to talk releases, and specifically the JReleaser tool.
