A new version of Weld core is now in Maven Central - 5.0.0.SP1.
There have been reports of a bytecode verification error in certain scenarios reported by GlassFish and WildFly trying to integrate Weld 5.0.0.Final. We have investigated the cause and identified the problematic change, you can read more about it in WELD-2719.
Weld 5.0.0.SP1 release reverts the offending change (WELD-2712) and otherwise keeps Weld intant in terms of changes. In case you identify any further issues, don’t hesitate to reach out.
