Quarkus 1.6.1.Final released - Bugfixes

Today, we released Quarkus 1.6.1.Final with some bugfixes and documentation improvements.

It is a safe upgrade for everyone using 1.6.0.Final.

What’s new?

Apart from bugfixes and usability improvements, Quarkus 1.6.1.Final introduces one behavior change: when building a native executable with GraalVM, the file.encoding is now set to UTF-8. It won’t change anything if you were using an UTF-8 system but it should be better if you were using non-UTF-8 locales on your system.

This behavior is enforced. If you have a case requiring the file.encoding to be configurable, please reach out to us via the usual channels.

Thanks to our contributors, we also made numerous improvements to the documentation.
