Pre-release

Warning: This release is intended for early adopter testing and not yet ready for production use.

Second release with a new implementation of the class loader.
The new implementation slims down on rarely used features and sets higher priority on maintainability.

  • improve lazy loading of jars
  • re-design of dialogs

The following features are known to be broken:

  • Sandboxing (only applications with all-permissions are currently supported)
  • Remembering of user decisions is missing
  • Using the Java service provider pattern (ServiceLoader) will download all jars.
