Maven Central is updated with additional security layer and new Jira, as a new official repo is launched in the United Kingdom.

Changes are afoot at Maven Central, as Sonatype have announced the provisioning of a new official repository in the United Kingdom. This repository is updated in lockstep with the US systems, and is managed and monitored by the same team watching over the US repositories. The UK repository consists of two fully redundant systems running in parallel.

The team have also made some changes at Maven Central. An additional layered security has been implemented around the repository machines, and a new system now vets inbound artifacts before publishing them to repol and Europe. A new Jira project has been introduced to manage concerns and issues surrounding Central.

Sonatype reveal they are also planning to launch an official Central Repository in Asia.
