As mentioned in our recent webinar, the release cadence of Java has increased with Java 10. A new major version of Java is now released twice a year, in March and September. This means that we will already have Java 11 in five months’ time. This increased pace means that features can be delivered faster, when they are ready, so users no longer have to wait potentially multiple years. Just in the six months between Java 9 and Java 10, we saw numerous features added to Java. Expect to see a good number going into Java 11 as well.
Since the release of JRebel 7.1.0 six months ago, JRebel has become part the robust suite of Java solutions at Rogue Wave Software. To celebrate this, we’ve made the new JRebel release two thousand and eleven times more awesome! Starting with this release, the version number will be based on the year. Making 2018.1.0, the first major release of JRebel in 2018. We’ll follow this up with 2018.2.0, the second major release this year, and so on. The regular minor updates will increment the third digit in the version number, which means the next minor release will be called 2018.1.1. We continuously improve our integrations and deliver support for new framework versions with each JRebel release, be that a major or minor update. So, what are you waiting for?

Hi, I’m Sten the Product Manager of JRebel for Android.
As a team, we’ve made the decision to halt active development on JRebel for Android. All JRebel for Android Free version users can continue using the product until March 31, 2019. However, we will not be accepting any new users.
Enterprise license users can continue using JRebel for Android until the license expires. And, as promised, we’ll also continue adding annotation processors for our Enterprise customers. We will continue integrating new Android Studio, Android Gradle Plugin, and Gradle versions throughout this time. However, we will not be building new features or working to further optimize the build process.
We would like to thank everyone who has been part of this awesome journey for the past three years. It has been challenging and fun. For those who are interested in the history, here’s a recap of how JRebel for Android came to be.

One of the most fascinating additions to Java 9 is the JVMCI: Java-Level JVM Compiler Interface, a Java based compiler interface which allows us to plug in a dynamic compiler into the JVM. One of the main inspirations for including it into Java 9 was due to project Graal — a dynamic state-of-the-art compiler written in Java.
