Byteman 3.0.10 and 4.0.0-BETA5 have been released

Byteman 3.0.10 is now available from the Byteman downloads page and from the Maven Central repository. It is accompanied by a corresponding 4.0.0-BETA5 release for JDK9.
3.0.10 is a minor update for the preceding release 3.0.9. It fixes a couple of bugs in the type checker. It is intended for use on JDK8 and earlier.
4.0.0-BETA5 is the corresponding release for use with JDK9. As well as providing the type checker fixes it also includes fixes to a couple of bugs found when testing on jdk9. One is a genuine bug in Byteman, the other works around a limitation on the use of method handles as currently implemented by JDK9.
More details can be found in the Release Notes.
Note that release 3.0.9 is intended for use on JDK6-8 whereas preview release Byteman 4.0.0-BETA4 is intended for use on the latest early access releases of JDK9 (jdk9-ea+165 and later).
Note also that 4.0.0-BETA4 should still work compatibly with 3.0.10 on JDK6-8.
