On the way to Tigase version 5.2.0 - improvement to the project management
Tigase is getting better and bigger!
We have also introduced change in how we build distribution packages (please see Tigase XMPP Server 5.2.0 and later - compilation and generating distribution packages for more information). In principle we switched from Ant to Maven completely and decided to split distribution packages in two flavors - minimal server distribution with server, xmltools and utils and second one with all additional components and dependencies. We also decided to separate stable and SNAPSHOT maven repositories (maven.tigase.org and build.tigase.org/maven) so if you are depending on them please update your configuration accordingly.
All of the above - introduction of Jenkins CI and switch to Maven allowed us to easily build Tigase distribution packages on a daily basis - you can grab nightly builds from mentioned earlier BUILD section of the website.
With the use of Jenkins and nightly builds we went a step further and automized execution of Tigase Test Suite scenarios on each nightly build - nightly test results are, again, available in the BUILD section.
This allowed us not only to ensure error-free compilation but also verify, that the Server is working correctly and all test cases available for Tigase Test Suite pass. If you depend on some particular use-case or usage scenario then we would like to encourage you to submit test case for TTS.
