Where can I get the latest release?

You can download source and binaries from our download page.

We accept PRs via github. The developer mailing list is the main channel of communication for contributors. There are some guidelines which will make applying PRs easier for us:

  • No tabs! Please use spaces for indentation.
  • Respect the code style.
  • Create minimal diffs - disable on save actions like reformat source code or organize imports. If you feel the source code should be reformatted create a separate PR for this change.
  • Provide JUnit tests for your changes and make sure your changes don't break any existing tests by running mvn clean test.

If you plan to contribute on a regular basis, please consider filing a contributor license agreement. You can learn more about contributing via GitHub in our contribution guidelines.


Code is under the Apache Licence v2.
