We are proud to announce that COPPER 5.0.0-alpha1 has just been released. It is available on GitHub and in Maven Central.

COPPER has been upgraded to ASM 6.1, so Java 9 and 10 are now supported in addition to Java 8. This release no longer supports Java 7 or older versions.

We also added support for the Java Platform Module System in order to let you build modular applications. However, if you don’t need this feature, you can use COPPER the same way as before.

In addition to the Java version upgrade, we are happy to share the alpha state of our new monitoring UI for COPPER, which is written as a modern single page application with Vue.js as JavaScript framework and communicating with the COPPER engine(s) via a JMX-REST Bridge (Jolokia). You can find the sources aon GitHub. Note that for the UI to work, your engine needs to be on that 5 release.
