The Ignite Realtime community is happy to announce the first beta version of the upcoming Smack version 4.1. Smack is an open source XMPP client library written in Java with multi-runtime support. It can be used with Java SE and Android runtimes. If you haven't done already now is the ideal time to grab Smack 4.1.0-beta1 and try it out. Compared to the alpha versions of 4.1 the API is considered stable and API changes are unlikely to happen.
Everyone is invited to test beta1 in his projects. The community forum awaits your feedback and bug reports. Although the beta version has proven reliable so far, please only use it productive after intensive testing.
An incomplete list of API changes can be found in the Smack 4.1 Readme and Upgrade Guide. Please consult the Readme before using Smack 4.1.
