I wanted to announce our plans in Orbit to remove some
versions of org.objectweb.asm from active builds: 1 new, 3 old.
The "new one" is 5.0.0. It was not even
in a "milestone" build, so doubt anyone has any hard dependency
on it, but a) that was "Beta code" until Java 8 was released,
then we picked up final released version with had a few bug fixes in it
over the beta version, but then b) Michael Rennie and others found a blocking
defect with that released version, which was promptly fixed, and a version
5.0.1 released. Hence, we'd like to have only 5.0.1 in Orbit repo, and
will remove any of the 5.0.0 versions.
As for the old ones, normally we try remove "old
stuff" by M5, but ... we slipped up and let that deadline pass without
thinking about it. And for this bundle, it's kind of ridiculous: We currently
have, in active builds and the latest R-build repo, versions 3.0, 3.1,
3.2, 3.3, 4.0, and now, soon 5.0.1. So, I plan to remove 3.0, 3.1, and
3.2. Again, only from "active" builds, for Luna. Nothing changes
If this has any unanticipated impact on anyone, feel
free to comment in bug

what you need.
This will happen in the next promoted I-build (hopefully
