The intent of this fork is solely to ensure availability in Maven Central and updating it as necessary to provide support for today's JVMs. The original Macker (Version 0.4.2) was using BCEL 5.2 to do the bytecode parsing necessary to detect package dependencies. Unfortunately, it is no longer compatible to the Java Class File Format of Java 1.7 and 1.8. This fork eliminates the dependency to BCEL and replaces it with Javassist, which seems to work with the newer class file versions.
