Guillaume Smet has created an innovative solution for notification of new releases on the Central Repository. It’s called Artifact Listener. When I spoke with him about it last week, he said he had just pushed a new release and would like people to come and try it out. Here’s his description of the project.
Artifact Listener is a service which notifies you of new releases of Java artifacts on the Central Repository. Everytime a new version of an artifact you are interested in is posted on Central, you get a nice email informing you of its release. It is a nice addition to the Versions Maven plugin.
It is designed to be simple and effective and it is based on the Search API provided by the Central Repository. It currently follows nearly 8000 artifacts for more than 350 users.
It started as an internship at Open Wide, a French tech company, and it is now an Open Source project open to contributions.
