Maven Cross-Platform Launcher Plugin: Change history

1.2.0 21st February 2019

  • Windows: Added the enhanced version of Janel 4.2.0-98 from Michael Knigge To provide support for 64-bit modern Java, Java 9, etc. - see the Github page for details. The default version of Janel is still 3.0.2 for backwards compatibility. To switch to the enhanced Janel use the 4.2 and optionally 64 (default) or 32

    to switch between 64- and 32-bit variants.

1.1.1 28th September 2017

  • Second release to Maven Central.
  • Source moved to bitbucket, updated many dependencies.
  • Fix bug: expand the shell’s arguments in double quotes, so that if you use quotes to preserve a single argument containing spaces, the Java program receives it as a single argument.
  • Built with Java 1.7.
  • Added the universal application stub v2.1.0 from Tobias Fischer. This allows OSX launchers to run with JVMs more modern than Apple’s Java 1.6. The default stub is still Apple’s: to switch to the universal stub and run with the most modern JVM you have, use the Universal option in your configuration. The universal application stub is licensed under the MIT license.
  • 1.1.0 exists but has errors in documentation.

0.2.2 25th September 2013

  • First release to Maven Central.

0.2.1 19th April 2011

  • This release is tested on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Mac OS X 10.6 and Ubuntu Linux 10.04.1 LTS.
  • Fixes a Linux launching bug where the error code was not being returned correctly
  • Changed the Windows-specific janelType configuration property to be available in all builds, and renamed it launcherType. It only makes sense on Windows or MacOSX. Use of janelType now fails the build with a message saying “use launcherType”. On MacOSX, use the console launcherType to create a structure like that used on Linux; GUI is still the default and still creates a .app structure.

0.2.0 28th September 2010

  • Adds support for the Maven NAR Plugin, in order to create launchers for projects that incorporate JNI code.

0.1.0 1st August 2010

  • Initial OSX only release.
