Byteman 2.1.4 has been released

Byteman release 2.1.4 is now available from the Byteman downloads page and the Maven Central Repository.

This is primarily a bug fix release but it does also introduce a small set of new features and enhancements:
  • class literals (e.g. can now be employed as expressions in Byteman rules
  • scripts can now be loaded from the CLASSPATH as resources using the -javagent option scriptresource:path/to/my/script.btm
  • the offline type checker (and also the maven check plugin) can be configured to check compilation of rules to bytecode
  • the rule parser explicitly catches and notifies missing IF clauses
Many thanks to Antoine Vianey for his contribution to BYTEMAN-255 which fixed the problem where BMUnit was not always working on Windows 7.
