This release contains some very cool new features. Here are a few of the highlights:
Vert.x now contains a proper module system and we’re launching a public module repository. We hope to encourage the community to contribute their own modules so they can be re-used by others.
Modules are automatically lazily installed from the repo (if they’re not already installed) when they’re referenced in your Vert.x applications.
Alternatively you can install them manually using `vertx install <module name>`.
Please see the documentations for full details of modules.
Python and CoffeeScript Support
Vert.x now supports both Python and CoffeeScript! Much Kudos to Scott Horn for the almost perfect pull requests he submitted.
Again, please see the website/docs for full information on this.
For a full list of all the other small features and fixes in this release please see githhub issues.
- Hot redeploy of module. (This is actually almost complete already but just didn’t make it into 1.2)
- Better testing support.
- Develop more modules.
- Scala? Kotlin? support. Stay tuned.
