Eclipse Vert.x 4 CR2 released!

We are ex­tremely pleased to an­nounce the first re­lease can­di­date of Vert.x 4.0.

We con­sider Vert.x 4.0 fea­ture com­plete and we will do a few re­lease can­di­dates to allow the com­mu­nity to test it and re­port is­sues.

Vert.x 4 is the evo­lu­tion of the Vert.x 3.x se­ries that will bring key fea­tures to Vert.x.

Since this re­lease can­di­date, we have cre­ated a new Home­Brew dis­tri­b­u­tion with a cus­tom third-​party repos­i­tory (TAP) and a vertx4 for­mula:

$ brew tap vertx-distrib/tap
$ brew install vertx4

This is the sec­ond re­lase can­di­date of Vert.x 4. You can of course ex­pect more as we get feed­back from the com­mu­nity and fix is­sues that we failed to catch be­fore.

You can also read the pre­vi­ous an­nounces to know more about the over­ral changes:

The dep­re­ca­tions and break­ing changes can be found on the wiki.

For this re­lease there are no Docker im­ages.

The re­lease ar­ti­facts have been de­ployed to Maven Cen­tral and you can get the dis­tri­b­u­tion on Maven Cen­tral.

You can boot­strap a Vert.x 4.0.0.CR2 project using https://start.vertx.io.

The doc­u­men­ta­tion has been de­ployed on this pre­view web-​site: https://vertx.io/docs/

That’s it! Happy cod­ing and see you soon on our user or dev chan­nels.
