Kpow v90.5 fixes a regression in the 90.4 build of our Java 8 JAR artifact.

Java 8 Build Regression

In the 90.4 release of Kpow we updgraded our SAML client to latest, this brought a transitive dependency that required Java 11+.

This release rolls back that transitive dependency in our Java 8 build only.


Our CI/CD process now runs full end-to-end build and tests on the Java 8 artifact with a Java 8 JRE.

This means we will catch any similar error earlier, in the automated build and release process.

If you have experienced an issue updating to Kpow v90.4 with Java 8, simply update to this release for the fix.
