Vert.x 3.1.0 is released!

I’m pleased to an­nounce the re­lease of Vert.x 3.1!

Some of the high­lights of this re­lease in­clude:

  • Vertx-​sync is a set of util­i­ties that allow you to per­form asyn­chro­nous op­er­a­tions and re­ceive events in a syn­chro­nous way, but with­out block­ing ker­nel threads.

  • Vertx-​stomp is an im­ple­men­ta­tion of a STOMP server and client. You can use the STOMP server with other clients and use the STOMP client with other servers. The server and the client sup­ports the ver­sion 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 of the STOMP pro­to­col. The STOMP server can also be used as a bridge with the vert.x event bus.

  • Vertx-​shell is a com­mand line in­ter­face for the Vert.x run­time avail­able from reg­u­lar ter­mi­nals using dif­fer­ent pro­to­cols.

  • Re-​implementation of the Starter class and re­lated func­tion­al­ity. And now re­de­ploy is back!
