Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache JMeter 5.2 released
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2019 09:13:49 GMT
The Apache JMeter team is pleased to announce the availability of Apache 
JMeter 5.2 (38eb2be8fb).

[We resend the announce because the source archives (zip/tgz) was having 
an incorrect download path. Fixed.]

This release brings a lot of new and improved features for developers to 
deliver load tests faster as part of continuous development factory.

This release brings also two major changes for the distributed 
version-control system and the building tool:
    - migration from Subversion (svn) to Git repository (compliant with 
GitHub and ASF GitBox)
    - migration from Apache Ant to Gradle build system

You can read the New and Noteworthy section to view improvements and 
full list of changes at:

JMeter 5.2 requires Java 8+ to run.

TCP, native calls and others.
