The Smack developer community is proud to announce the availability of the first release candidate of Smack 4.3. Users of Smack are encouraged switch to the new 4.3 release family of Smack. The Smack 4.3 API is considered frozen and the API changes between 4.2 and 4.3 are not as significant compared to the changes between Smack 4.1 and 4.2. More information can be found in the Readme of Smack 4.3 (please note that the Readme is work in progress).
Together with the 4.3.0-rc1 release, we have also published the first alpha of Smack 4.4, which includes the updated and improved OMEMO API. Credits for this go to Paul.
As always, all the release artifacts are available on Maven Central.
