In the last months a lot of people asked me if the M2Mqtt and GnatMQ projects are dead because there were no commits for a long time.
I can say … no ! They are not absolutely dead !
I was very busy in the last months, starting my new exciting Red Hat career in the messaging and IoT team, but I want to continue to support the projects as lead and main committer. Of course, I’ll be still busy with my new job but my commitment is to continue to improve the libraries, fixing bugs and adding new features. Just remember that I’ll do it in my spare time so I could not be so quick to reply your suggestions; of course your help with useful pull requests will be great !
As you now, today the M2Mqtt client library is under the official Paho GitHub repo and I have finally deleted the repo on my personal GitHub account.
The GnatMQ, based on M2Mqtt, will continue to live where it’s now here.
I’ll do my best to check the issues and the pull requests provided by the community, happy to know that my projects have a lot of followers and there are a lot of professional solutions using them out there !
As always I invite you to share with me your experience using my libraries in order to mention your solution in the “case studies” section of the official web site.
