[imaging] Updated Maven release of Commons Imaging to Maven central repo

Andreas Røsdal
Hello!

I would be very interested in an updated release of Commons Imaging to the
Maven central repo.
I've begun using Commons Imaging in the OpenPDF library, however I need
features which
are only available in recent builds of Commons Imaging.

The "0.97-incubator" version is too old and doesn't have the features I
need. There is a "1.0-SNAPSHOT" build which is published on an apache
snapshot repository.

Would it be possible to publish a new release of Commons Imaging soon to
the central Maven repository?

https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-imaging/index.html

(I'm using Commons Imaging on OpenPDF here:
https://github.com/LibrePDF/OpenPDF )

Regards,
Andreas R.

Hi Andreas!
Happy to hear you successfully used Commons Imaging, and also keen to hear what features/suggestions you have for the API.
There was a call for 1.0 to be released, but some blockers were found and the release was called off (e.g. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAGING-154).
I intend to i) fix a few more bugs and ii) fix the blocker issues and iii) release a new version to maven central (using the new commons release plugin). But haven't found much time in the past two months. If you have some spare time, feel free to look at the current issues, and see if you have a suggestion or would be interested in submitting a pull request.
It should be possible to release a new snapshot, or maybe another alpha/beta ? Though I suspect in the end the simplest solution is to fix whatever blockers we have for 1.0, and just go with the initial full release.
CheersBruno

We could release an alpha or beta version first.

Yes, a alpha/beta release to the maven central now would be very useful!
The API has changed significantly since the 0.97-incubator version.
Frequent releases is very common in open source, to give users/developers
easier access to the most updated version. The 0.97-incubator version was
released in 2009, so I hope you find the time to make another more updated
release to the central maven repo.

Hi,
@Gary, will try to prepare a 1.0, as it seems there are few issues pending. If that doesn't work, will do as you suggested in your reply and prepare an alpha release.
@Andreas,

>Frequent releases is very common in open source, to give users/developers easier access to the most updated version
+1 for RERO, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Release_early,_release_often

>so I hope you find the time to make another more updated release to the central maven repo.
As a note to myself ( or to another developer who reads this thread in the future, in case I fail to cut a 1.0 release), here's my plan/notes:

Issues triaged. Left bugs that can be fixed in 1.1 / 1.0.1 / or even 2.0 out. Also checked all issues in changes.xml, up to IMAGING-124 (commit 071e63ed72e29d2394fa7db74af9a69ecd0614f0), making sure fix version was set to 1.0.
There are three pending issues for 1.0 (https://issues.apache.org/jira/issues/?jql=project%20%3D%20IMAGING%20AND%20fixVersion%20%3D%201.0%20and%20resolution%20is%20empty):
- IMAGING-161, move packages, planning to tackle this one this weekend
- IMAGING-154, remove Debug class. This is where I got stalled last time. Still prefer to remove it, but if we can't reach consensus on this, will probably start thinking on a third option, or just go with the alpha release for now
- IMAGING-103, update project page
- No ticket, but will have to read about the new commons release plugin and possibly ping Gary/Rob (:
- Then prepare e-mail to send to the mailing list (include a question about Java version, probably we can update from 7 to 8...)

CheersBruno
