MarkUtils Refresh, New Hosting

It's been a few years, but I just completed a much-needed refresh to my open source Java libraries ("MarkUtils").

The code is vastly unchanged, and has held up incredibly well over the Java 1.6, 1.7, and 1.8 upgrades (and soon, 1.9) - probably mostly due to 90%+ unit test coverage on everything. The main driving factor here was to get things re-hosted following the shutdown of In the process, I rebased against against all the latest dependencies and Maven plugins, and issued a coordinated release. Everything is built on the latest version of Java (and only publicly available secure version), 1.8.0_131 as of this writing - but should continue to run fine on older runtimes as documented and as needed for other purposes. Change logs are included in the Maven site reports of each project. Also included are some new projects, as well as some past efforts not previously hosted - neither of which have been blogged about in further detail here yet.

Downloads and additional details here: HTTPS/TLS/SSL, DNSSEC, CDN, and IPv6 support all now included.

As time permits, I'll work through my collection of old blog posts here to update any broken links to - as well as to the legacy downloads across and Google Code. Future efforts may include making the source code available directly on GitHub, as well as an accessible online Maven repository - either as a hosted directory at the above site, or possibly through Bintray (any input is welcome).
