Build status Maven Central Codacy Codecov

The changelog package defines a simple schema for software changelogs. It categorizes changes by type. This allows, for example, easy checking for backwards-incompatible changes on each new release of a piece of software. The changelogs can also reference ticketing systems to show that a given change fixes a given ticket.

The package also defines a set of Java classes to parse and transform changelogs.
