  • v0.11.3 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release:

    • โž• Adds additional handling for rare JSON parsing exceptions and wraps them in a JwtException to allow the application to handle these conditions as JWT concerns.
    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgrades the jjwt-jackson module's Jackson dependency to
  • v0.11.2 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release:

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Allows empty JWS bodies to support RFC 8555 and similar initiatives. Pull Request 540
    • Ensures OSGi environments can access JJWT implementation bundles (jjwt-jackson, jjwt-gson, etc) as fragments to jjwt-api bundle. Pull Request 580
    • Rejects allowedClockSkewSeconds values that would cause numeric overflow. Issue 583
    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgrades Jackson dependency to version to address all known Jackson CVE vulnerabilities. Issue 585
    • โšก๏ธ Updates SecretKey algorithm name validation to allow PKCS12 KeyStore OIDs in addition to JCA Names. Issue 588
    • ๐Ÿ— Enabled CI builds on JDK 14. Pull Request 590
    • โž• Adds missing parameters type to Maps.add(), which removes an unchecked type warning. Issue 591
    • Ensures GsonDeserializer always uses UTF-8 for encoding bytes to Strings. Pull Request 592

    All issues and PRs are listed in the Github JJWT 0.11.2 milestone.

  • v0.11.1 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release:

    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgrades the jjwt-jackson module's Jackson dependency to
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes an issue when using Java 9+ Map.of with JacksonDeserializer that resulted in an NullPointerException.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes an issue that prevented the jjwt-gson .jar's seralizer/deserializer implementation from being detected automatically.
    • Ensures service implementations are now loaded from the context class loader, Services.class.classLoader, and the system classloader, the first classloader with a service wins, and the others are ignored. This mimics how Classes.forName() works, and how JJWT attempted to auto-discover various implementations in previous versions.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes a minor error in the Claims#getIssuedAt JavaDoc.
  • v0.11.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This minor release:

    • โž• Adds Google's Gson as a natively supported JSON parser. Installation instructions have been updated and new JJWT Gson usage guidelines have been added.
    • ๐Ÿš€ Updates the Jackson dependency version to 2.9.10 ๐Ÿ”’ to address three security vulnerabilities in Jackson.
    • ๐Ÿšš A new JwtParserBuilder interface has been added and is the recommended way of creating an immutable and thread-safe JwtParser instance. Mutable methods in JwtParser will be removed before v1.0. Migration to the new signatures is straightforward, for example:

      Previous Version:


      Current Version:

    • โž• Adds io.jsonwebtoken.lang.Maps utility class to make creation of maps fluent, as demonstrated next.

    • โž• Adds support for custom types when deserializing with Jackson. To use configure your parser:

          new JacksonDeserializer(
              Maps.of("claimName", YourType.class).build() // <--
    • ๐Ÿ“ฆ Moves JSON Serializer/Deserializer implementations to a different package name.

      • ->
      • ->
      • ->
      • ->

    A backward compatibility modules has been created using the deprecated classifier (io.jsonwebtoken:jjwt-jackson:0.11.0:deprecated and io.jsonwebtoken:jjwt-orjson:0.11.0:deprecated), if you are compiling against these classes directly, otherwise you will be unaffected.

    โš  Backwards Compatibility Warning

    ๐Ÿ“ฆ Due to this package move, if you are currently using one of the above four existing (pre 0.11.0) classes with compile scope, you must either:

    1. change your code to use the newer package classes (recommended), or
    2. change your build/dependency configuration to use the deprecated dependency classifier to use the existing classes, as follows:




    compile 'io.jsonwebtoken:jjwt-jackson:0.11.0:deprecated'

    Note: that the first option is recommended since the second option will not be available starting with the 1.0 release.

  • v0.10.8 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release:

    • Ensures that SignatureAlgorithms PS256, PS384, and PS512 work properly on JDK 11 and later without the need for BouncyCastle. Previous releases referenced a BouncyCastle-specific algorithm name instead of the Java Security Standard Algorithm Name of RSASSA-PSS. This release ensures the standard name is used moving forward.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes a backwards-compatibility bug when parsing compressed JWTs created from 0.10.6 or earlier using the DEFLATE compression algorithm.

  • v0.10.7 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release:

    • โž• Adds a new Community section in the documentation discussing asking questions, using Slack and Gittr, and opening new issues and pull requests.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes a memory leak found in the DEFLATE compression codec implementation.
    • ๐Ÿš€ Updates the Jackson dependency version to ๐Ÿ”’ to address three security vulnerabilities in Jackson: CVE-2019-12086, CVE-2019-12384, and CVE-2019-12814.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes a bug when Jackson is in the classpath but the jjwt-jackson .jar is not.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixes various documentation and typo fixes.
  • v0.10.6 Changes

    ๐Ÿš‘ This patch release updates the jackson-databind version to 2.9.8 to address a critical security vulnerability in that library.

  • v0.10.5 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release fixed an Android org.json library compatibility issue.

  • v0.10.4 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This patch release fixed an outstanding issue with JCA name ๐Ÿš€ case-sensitivity that impacted Android that was not caught in the 0.10.3 release.

  • v0.10.3 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This is a minor patch release that fixed a key length assertion for SignatureAlgorithm.forSigningKey that was ๐Ÿ“š failing in Android environments. The Android dependencies and ProGuard exclusions documentation was updated as well to reflect Android Studio 3.0 conventions.
