jclouds 1.6.1 Released With New Maven groupId

26 Jun 2013

jclouds 1.6.1 has been released! Here’s the official announcement. This marks our first release as an incubated Apache project. We’ve fixed a number of issues and we’ve updated a lot of license headers :P but the biggest change is to our Maven groupId. It’s gone from org.jclouds to org.apache.jclouds. The version also includes a “-incubating” to indicate our current incubation status in Apache. This is a big update as we’ve effectively changed the address where you download jclouds.

Now a Maven pom.xml dependency would look like:


Note that the package names in the source code have not changed. That’s something that will need to happen but we won’t make a change of that magnitude until the next major release.


We’ll be celebrating our first Apache release of jclouds 1.6.1-incubating and all that wonderfulness with free food and drinks at a meetup in San Francisco on July 8.

We can discuss:

  • The transition to Apache
  • What’s new in 1.6.1-incubating
  • What’s coming in future releases
  • How to use jclouds
  • How to contribute to jclouds

Hope to see you there.
