Apache Karaf 2.4.0:
Our next iteration of the 2.x line will introduce: The latest Aries and Pax libraries, Apache Pom 13, add support for role-based JMX authorization, includes heap dumps when we create debugging data from create dump command, blueprint-web feature, support for JAAS groups, and includes Pax CDI feature. Of course there are many other new additions, which you'll have to read about in the release notes.
To prepare I've selected a bottle of Barbera D'asti Bersano 2008 to decant while listening to Arcade Fire's album Reflektor.

To prepare for this patch, I've selected a bottle of Extravaganza Trapiche 2013 to decant while listening to Pearl Jam's album Lightening Bolt.
