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!

Many thanks to all the committers and community whose contributions made this possible.
A special thanks to the full-time team - Clement, Julien and Paulo who put in a lot of work to get this out :)
Next stop is Vert.x 3.2 which we hope to have out before Christmas.
Finally, back... This post is the fifth post of the introduction to vert.x blog series, after a not-that-small break. In this post we are going to see how we can use JDBC in a vert.x application.
We see a new trend in development where we are shifting from developing applications to APIs. More and more we see services being offered as REST APIs that we are allowed to consume.
