For the purpose of modernization, we think about changing the Jajuk versioning scheme from Jajuk 1.11.8, 1.10.8... to 11, 12.1, 12.2, 13 (like Firefox or chrome) ... with more frequent releases. What do you think ?

Hi everybody,

We work hard on upcoming 1.11.0. This will be mainly a cleanup release to upgrade Jajuk to a better and simpler code and make fix several packaging and integration issues (like the end of support of the systray under Gnome). We plan several cleanups :
- End of support of Java 7 and support of Java 9
- Removal of the systray [3] , it no more makes much sense in modern GUI [1]
- Removal of pure java sound support (all libraries are obsolete and no more supported), only mplayer would be supported
- Removal of the DBus system under Linux ?
- Removal of the splashscreen ?
- Removal of the hot keys under windows [2] ?
- Upgrade of most java dependencies
- Others ?

What do you think ? do you actually use some of these features ? Others ideas ?

We just finished a full rewrite of Jajuk packaging ( for Debian, RPM-based Linux, OSX, Windows and source package). It will be available in upcoming 1.11.

More details at http://www.jajuk.info/integration_procedures.html#about-the-packaging

The build scripts are now much lighter, easier to understand and to evolve. Dependencies adding or removal are now transparent. No more partial Maven or alien to build packages, everything is done with two ant scripts.

A lot of cleanup has also been done into unix launch scripts.

You can test it at http://integration.jajuk.info:8080/job/unstable

Jajuk 1.10.9 has been proposed under Debian unstable (SID). Many thanks to the Debian team (Felix Natter and all the packagers of previous releases)

Help required from Windows 10 users :

Could you please launch Jajuk (1.10.8 preferably ) and tell us if you can see the systray (the small icon in the taskbar) and tell us if it works as expected ?
-> a left click should show/hide the main window and a right click should open a menu with many options and searches.

Thanks for your help

Due to Substance library upgrade [1], we'll now require JRE 1.7.

IMO, it's a good thing to stop Java 6 support, it is no more supported by Oracle.

I'll make the changes in the scripts, code and manuals for upcoming 1.10.8.

We are planning to drop the systray support on upcoming Jajuk 1.11 ake "Deep Blue" because of bad support on more and more platforms.

What do you think ?
