Maven JLink Plugin Version 3.1.0 released

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven JLink Plugin, version 3.1.0.

This plugin is used to create a JLink distribution using Maven. It is as easy as creating a jar file, but will instead create a zip file containing a reduced Java Runtime along with a launcher script, as well as the actual application of course. A JLink zip file is therefore platform dependent.

Gogs Git-Server: Fast, beautiful, lightweight

The Gogs Git-Server is a central repository for your private git projects. Usually, you wouldn’t need a  git server at all, or you would probably use  GitLab. But GitLab can be a complex mess, so I was looking for an easy-to-use alternative. Other well-known git servers are e.g. Atlassian Bitbucket, Gitblit and GitList.

But aside from all those Gogs is the only one to be fast AND lightweight AND eays-to-use: Gogs is written in Googleʼs Go Programming Language which makes it really fast.
