The Ignite Realtime community is very happy and proud to announce the
release of Smack 4.1, our open source XMPP client library. Since Smack
4.1 is not binary compatible with Smack 4.0, i.e. it is not a drop-in
replacement, make sure to have a look at the "Smack 4.1 Readme and
Upgrade Guide" [1].

Smack 4.1 marks a milestone in the development history of Smack, as its
obsoletes aSmack, the build environment formerly required to port Smack
to Android. Starting with 4.1, Smack is able to run natively and
unmodified on Android.

A further release highlight, among many others, is the support for
XEP-198: Stream Management. Note that like every new big feature, Stream
Management is disabled by default.

The full changelog can be found at
the javadoc is available accessible via
https://www.igniterealtime.org/builds/smack/docs/4.1.0/javadoc/ and the
documentation available at

We would like to thank everyone who provided feedback, bug reports and
contributed. The developers and contributors for the 4.1.0 release,
since 4.0.0 are:

The signed tag used to upload the 4.1.0 artifacts to Maven Central
points to 4bb8aea2815ceaab4224d1e2c3d80ba70c1f3803 [2]. As always, Smack
4.1.0 is available via Maven Central.

Now go ahead and implement a open source XMPP client with Smack, be it
for Android or one of the many platforms supported by Java. But even
more importantly, provide feedback and help to improve Smack. We try our
best to make Smack one of the best, stable and reliable open source
libraries for XMPP, but it's far from being perfect. Join #smack
(freenode) and discuss with us how Smack could be improved.

Happy Hacking.
