Flyway 2.0 and Methods & Tools article

It was during the last days of 2010 that Flyway 1.0 saw the light of day.

Since then almost 2 years and 11 months have passed. During this time Flyway improved considerably. Next to the Maven plugin and API, there is now a Command-line tool and Ant tasks. Database support has vastly improved with the addition of SQL Server, DB2, Derby and Google Cloud SQL. Meanwhile, all of Flyway's dependencies have been made optional. Flyway now has zero required dependencies! And if that wasn't enough, many smaller features have been implemented and countless bugs have been fixed!

It's been quite a ride indeed! And now the next chapter can begin! Flyway 2.0 was released a few days ago. The number of download has quadrupled in the last year, and there doesn't seem to be any stopping in sight!

To celebrate Flyway's new release, I've also launched a completely redesigned project home page and moved it to its own domain:

For announcements or referencing the project, there is now also an own twitter account: @flywaydb.

And to make getting started even easier, I also wrote an introductory article for Methods & Tools.

The future looks bright! Enjoy!
