Smack 4.4.8 released

We are happy to announce the release of Smack 4.4.8, our XMPP-client library for JVMs and Android. For a high-level overview of what’s changed in Smack 4.4.8, check out Smack’s changelog

Smack 4.4.8 contains mostly small fixes. However, we fixed one nasty bug in Smack’s reactor causing an, potentially endless, busy loop. Smack’s new connection infrastrucutre makes heavy use of the reactor, that enables tausands of connections being served by only a handful of threads.

As always, this Smack patchlevel release is API compatible within the same major-minor version series (4.4) and all Smack releases are available via Maven Central.

We would like to use this occasion to point at that Smack now ships with a NOTICE file. Please note that this adds some requirements when using Smack as per the Apache License 2.0. The content of Smack’s NOTICE file can conveniently be retrieved using Smack.getNoticeStream().
