At blk.io we are always looking to improve and streamline our build and release process in all software projects that we work on, be it for internal projects, client engagements or open source libraries.
web3j is no exception to this, and 4.1.1 was released with some minor community-driven fixes alongside some other changes to document and detail the release process for web3j and associated products, e.g. web3j-homebrew.
Documentation is a first-class citizen in our development process here at blk.io, and this is vital for maintaining continuity in both our internal and open-source contributions. If you’d like to find out more about how we can help you in your blockchain journeys feel free to get in touch !
