as the original upstream repository seems dead it might be worth to start releasing from your repository.
Talking to the old upstream probably a good idea. But given the library still sees use by projects (including yours), I think it would be a good idea to have proper releases again.

yes, regular releases would be nicer for distributions.
@mhallendal - could you maybe redirect people from your repo to this to make this the new upstream?


@tyll sure, I went ahead and made my fork a fork off this one instead and added a comment in the description.

OK, thank you @mhallendal - we'll try to publish a new "official" release then.
Thanks to @darix & @tyll as well!

I have tagged release 1.5.1 and the archive/tarball is available at
Let me know if there is any issue with it!


Thank you @McKael; Homebrew now uses the 1.5.1 version.

McKael commented Nov 10, 2015

The release is there, with announcements on and the jdev mailing list.

Thank you all!
